In Situ. – Light Night Liverpool

Good Afternoon!

The latest from my creative journey…..

I was asked a couple of months ago to be involved in this and I’m made up to be included in the commissions for part of tonight’s Light Night Liverpool.

In writing a song for ‘In Situ‘ I wrote ‘Faith on Hope st.‘ to go with the suitcases installation  (A Case History)  and surrounding area on Hope st./Mount st.

I’ve had some good / bad / drunk / sober / hilarious and inspirational times in the area…so there was plenty of inspiration to draw from, such a mixed bag and important area of the City.

All of the tracks for the project are downloadable for people now ready to go on an audio tour around Liverpool this evening.  People will be meeting at 9pm, Anglican Cathedral tonight and experiencing the expressions of local musicians to evoke the chosen places around the city.

Please, also download the audio even if you can’t make this evening and would just like to indulge in some Liverpool inspired songwriting!

Music for Empty Spaces

Happy November folks 🙂

A couple of months ago I was invited by Roger Hill from ‘The Popular Music Show’ at Radio Merseyside to contribute a song to the Empty Spaces project.   I love a good excuse to write a song and flex those muscles so was very happy to serve up my creative offering.

The project was to write music to invoke / express spaces in Liverpool that are run down and not in use, or in use but how do they feel when they are empty…

For me, I immediately thought of the Atrium in LIPA, a place where I spent much time as a student, a place that many many others have also experience.  It has such a potent atmosphere that I couldn’t resist.   My song is called ‘Always feel like home’.  The show was aired last night.
