Random Feathers

Hello, I thought I would post about this work, I wrote it in the summer and when I was getting Rocco ready for the art lending gallery this week, I remembered that I had written it, and thought that the high frequencies might work really well in the space. I wrote it after a mini obsession with Emily Dickinson poem Hope Is The Thing With Feathers I made a couple of videos on the subject and worked with a selection of synthesized sound and text, just writing idea's out of my system. The final work is 5 movements long, its available on Band camp and will be on iTunes. It seemed not the time to publish anything in the summer, maybe I was too close to the material.Maybe I just didn't feel right about it. The other day I overheard someone saying that life was fleeting and loan. I thought now it made sense for me to play the work in the Lending Gallery.

Holloway Lending Gallery 356 holloway rd
Published 06 December, 2017 by JT

This weekend 2 of my works and an instillation of my work Rocco are being played at the lending library at Holloway rd,London. It is a very special thing which I came across totally by accident when I was doing some training for a job in September this year. The gallery lends art for 3 months at a time, people take it home and live with the art and then bring it back and maybe choose another piece.I totally loved this concept as a person who has spent a great deal of my life moving, a 3 month loan of art seems to be a pretty stunning opportunity to live with something beautiful and expressive and then sharing it back again.
I have shared 2 of my works from "songs for departure".
The last time I was at the gallery it was so silent, and I suggested that they have one of my works to play , so this time Rocco is being played. It is a very delicate work and very tactile. I'm really looking forward to hearing it in the space.
The thing I really love about creativity is that it shows itself everywhere.

348 Old Street ,

1st-3rd December

I have a show coming up next weekend at Old Street. 1st -3rd December
It is an art show.I will be showing two pieces,very small pieces.They both follow quite rhythmic patterns, sometimes are quite impulsive sometimes work with density and behaviour, mostly just like the way I compose with sound.
They are made from very old maps of London which I've cut up and re-arranged.

There will be two very small originals
I have made some small posters which will be available.

Thank you,
Address is 348 Old street,
