Song 2

So second one done and now it's getting a bit cold up here. Looking forward to a heater.

I have attached the song lyric and also the Manifesto created at the Seminar in Salzburg. It's an interesting read.

Song 1

Well apart from forgetting to put up the mikes that was an ok start. Need to remember to alter the camera setting as well so that it is light enough.

And I'm up !

Getting set up and the rain is attacking the windows... Delivered by Michael back from Spain who leaves me with an 'asta luego'!

And today in honour of the Moldovan entry for the eurovision I have written a short song to test out the system with Soundcloud.. Using their lyric format (as suggested by friend Sasha) it followed a shop to Morrsions with my lovely wife Kathryn to buy food for the house in the week ahead and a few essentials for my solitude up the tower.

An Art Work

Starting to gather a bag of stuff to take with me. Conversations with a variety of people make me consider the whole event in different ways. A 24 hour improvisation. and here is the quote from my cousin..

A week of dandelions

I've been around on site since monday and have explored the grounds, collected specimens and discussed the project with a number of people from different departments. All in all a good week.

planning for the Full Moon

I spent yesterday in the company of many many friends at the funeral of a great man. He stays in my mind all the time and his smile and great humour are a constant reminder of life's energy at its greatest. Because of the funeral I postponed this 24 hours to next week and so... it coincides with the full moon.

first emails out

Yesterday I went with Liam, who is on a work placement with us, up to the Tower to meet Steph and set up some instruments and check out the camera and the set up in the room. We chatted on the way through Lancaster - he had never been to the uni - about getting lost. He wasn't phased by the idea of the new songs. We hauled my piano up to the top floor (by lift) tried out the sound and left very quickly!
