Nearing the end of the dig
By next week most of the archiving of past work will be done. I plan to do some deeper digging and transfer older formats later in the summer. There is a radio version of HAMLETMACHINE that I made with Benedict Weisser on Radio 100 back in 1999 that I'd love to get up as well as some other radio plays from that period.
Another older project that I am planning on transferring and uploading is a set of 'books' that Steve Heather and I made while we were in residence at Les Bains Connective in Brussels. We produced a series of compositions based around speech, performance, choreography, urban geography and some wonderful invited guests. It was a really special moment.
And lastly, there are several performances at Les Bains that should be out there in the world. I will put up some excerpts in the near future and see if there is any way to get the whole concerts out.
It is a small irony that I am hit with this archive fever in the moment that I have so many projects on my plate. It is through understanding this old pile of work (instead of leaving it in the dust) that I am feeling better than ever about making some new work. Let this be proof that the internet truly is a narcissistic environment!
