 Mouth Tapestry

Tonight my music is being played in Bochum University in Germany near Dusseldorf. This is a privilege the great honour I am pleased that my music has been programmed, Thank you.

The picture above is one of the work of Louise Bourgeois, Cell Eyes Mirror. It is part of new collection that is based in the new wing of the Tate gallery on the south bank. The new space offers promise to be an amazing place where works of art can be multidisciplinary, truly time-based and absolutely capture diversity in arts in Great Britain today.

No longer hollow london glass buildings but bricks and mortar that last a lifetime,

Beauty of Group

Hallo there ,
It has been a while, but not so long, just a few weeks.So, for the past few weeks I have been marking music and scripts for my students. In the midst of all the marks some really special moments have erupted out of the canopy of opportunity .

Professor Marc Matter in Dusseldorf is talking about my music in “the rustle of language” at the festival “the other / the self” on June 4th 2016 at QO2 soundartspace in Brussels.This is very exciting and I am thrilled to have been invited to send some vocal recordings about the influence of Voice Gender and Identity in my composition in for his talk.

Fantastic thing this weekend : Women's Conducting Course at Kings Collage , brilliant idea and will be able to ruff up on my conducting skills for the future
Onwards ,
Jo

Oramics Machine

I have the privilege of been able to use Tom Richards new Oramics Machine developed from the original model made by Daphne Oram. I'm working on it next weekend in my studio and I am very excited. I'm going to try and super impose or copy some of my paintings and scores into the machine. It is something that I have wanted to do for a life time so it means a lot to me to have the amazing opportunity.

Lovely performance last night with Florence Peake who worked with a fantastic team of dancers to collaborate with me in the Magnetic South Festival. Very Avant Garde ,beautiful bold sound and striking images of vibrating bodies in space . Loved it and hope we get the chance to work on it again .

Will have some images soon and here are some links to the composer Daphne Oram and Toms Richards work,
