This Sunday I will be providing some cunningly simple AV support to the Revolution of Form event at The Bluecoat. It features several poets exploring new methods of performance poetry, alongside other artists, musicians and illustrators. It has been organised by Nathan Jones, resident poet and Mercy man, who will also be performing two pieces with the support of illustrators Chris Rodenhurst and Neil Keating. Here are some pictures of our rehearsal last week. I’ll try get some better videos of the actaul show that show the buffering capture via isadora.

Sketchybeast @ Transition

A couple of weeks ago Ms Peel and the Sketchybeast asked me to take part in a street-based ‘Drawing Music’ performance for Transition, the hand-over event for Capital of Culture. We bought a car battery AC convertor from Maplins, and I brought a projector and screen. Ms Peel dressed up in a fur coat, and Chris wore a wolf’s head. The projector broke, Hannah lost her voice, and Chris just felt lonely inside his mask. It didn’t really go well at all, but we persevered. In the end it transpired we were part of an elaborate street-theatre traffic management strategy to slow the exodus of people after the Albert Dock celebration. Liverpool Stories filmed it all though and made it look better – you can see the video here.

My good friends Chris Rodenhurst (Sketchybeast) and Hannah Peel (Kinetic Fallacy) will be performing together on Sunday 16th March at the opening of The Bluecoat arts centre in Liverpool. Chris will be showing a slideshow about a boys journey into the mouth of a tiger(!) whilst Kinetic Fallacy provide the music, before drawing live and large to Ms Peel’s creation of loops and melodies. I will be filming this drawathon and also selling 10p raffle tickets to win some black pudding and a set of Sketchybeast postcards.More of Chris’ work can be seen at Sketchybeast.com, Hannah’s music can be heard both at her own website – hannahpeel.co.uk – and at kineticfallacy.co.uk
