Musical collaboration with Breathing Space collective at Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, March 3rd 2017

Input to development of a semi-improvised piece for 4 vocalists, objects, electronics, violin, tuba and 'cello (played by myself).

"Live and recorded sound fragments tell a story from behind the scenes of the museum, as we interrogate collection, classification and interpretation using the fluid concept of a folk song as a parallel to solid objects. The song becomes the object to be entered into the collection, its fractured parts gathering and reforming across the performance. Can sound live the same life as an object when it enters a museum?"
