great ecc song 2

Here's the second video of the lovely folks I worked with in Great Eccleston - We had so many things to say about the village we filled the piece of paper, so the song does end up sounding a bit like a list, but it would have been a shame to miss things out...

Lighten Up - Light Up The Streets

Lighten Up, part of Light Up The Streets in Lancaster on 7 November 2014. ‘Lighten Up’ placed a lens over the Judges’ Lodgings in Lancaster. This short piece magnifies key episodes from the historical past and links them to the world today. Dolls from the Museum of Childhood and kitchen utensils from the Georgian Kitchen unite in a nursery rhyme dance to lighten up the sky and demolish the old order. Images: John Fox and Hannah Fox. Music: Pete Moser and Dan Fox. Projections: Jason Threlfall

Hot Chocolate

Written with parents, children and staff at Flakefleet Primary School after a lunchtime stroll

That Looks Good But I Can't See It

Written with an art group who meet at Wyre Country Park. This song was the first one we did together - while we were still working out how to go about our task! The lyrics came from conversations overheard between painters and their tutor, Tina.

Walk with Me

Written with an art group who meet at Wyre Country Park. Thinking about interesting places to go a list of intriguing road names emerged.....this song could go on and on!

JAM GIN

Written with an art group who meet at Wyre Country Park. We talked about going foraging for damsons, sloes, blackberries, raspberries and sandfire. One of the new members worked out a tune for the word "foraging" using the alphabet system where each letter of the alphabet lines up under pitches A - G to give a note. It became FADAGBGG and off we set.

Poco Loco Samba Band's "Walking Groove"

We came up with this polyrhythmic groove to reflect the stretch and pull of being in a parading band. "I'm, walking, carefully, don't fall over"

Song 24 - It's Goodbye From The Mount

A developed reprise of the opening song with reflections on the 24 hours of songmaking.

Song 23 - We’re gonna build a pier

We had visitors to help us write this song about the pier – it became an ironic beach boys style rock n roll number that wrote itself from the information they presented in photos. This song has the potential to grow!

Song 22 Lost and found

Back to colleague at Hong Kong University where I was to visit to work in October on an event that had the theme of “Lost and Found”. Their boss Chi Chung was in Honolulu so this naturally ended up on Ukelele.

Song 21 My eyes are like dried up raisins

Matt Fenton commissioned the first residency and when approached to give a theme for a song for himself this time it was to be around the exhaustion and overkill of being in Edinburgh for the Fringe. We asked him and other people what shows he had been to (might have been to) and a tired blues appeared!

Song 20

“After some deliberation, Adam has come up with the theme 'A day in the life of a boot'. He said if you can get Henry VIII somewhere in there, that would be cool, and he imagines it to be fast and a mixture of silly and serious! Hannah asked if you could get a crazy key change in.” This was the request and it makes it an easy job when such a specific set of ideas are there. This was for Jenny Henley and kids in south London (the final ISME contact) and included a sad moment (requested) for composer friend Hugh in Torquay.
