Yes! We did it again! This year at Supernormal was awesome, I (with Kim Da Costa from Form Constants) was involved in Sam Francis’ Shed Project which was an unplanned evolving sound stage along with a number of other artists. Others projects and individuals involved in The Shed included Sam Underwood, Bermuda Triangle Test Engineers, XXXTipex, Cymagick, Music by the Metre and Emma Lilwall. The weekend saw these projects played out and intertwined in spontaneous collaborations, it was great!
I was also involved in Field Sports/Fold Music which was an evolution of the Team Sports trio (Ian Watson, Matthew Lovett and Jimmy Otley). This project involved Nic Finch and Jimmy Otley on cello, Tina Hitchens on violin, Matt Lovett on acoustic guitar, Nick Harrison on drums and myself on battery powered electronics. We played in the living room / hall inside Braziers House, my home made amplifiers I built for Supernormal 2013 were a feature here again being used to amplify my electronics and play back field recordings the group had made.
I will add pictures and recordings around here as I acquire them and/or get permission…

For now, here is a great video of many highlights of the festival with The Shed being featured a lot, enjoy!
