We are excited to be working on our new piece for 2019/2020:

 

A Music/Sound Mash up inspired by Day of the Triffids

Research throughout 2019
Premiere at Theatre Royal Winchester Feb 5/6 2020
National Touring Spring/Autumn 2020

With thanks for kind permission from Paper Lion Ltd and the John Wyndham Trust.

We are using sounds samples from 1950s B Movies, combining them with audio from interviews from our local allotment and text from the novel - creating music and weird and wonderful sound worlds. We are even buying a Theramin - an instrument played with sound waves and some waving of the hands!

Our Work in Progress sharing is on June 14th 2019 8pm University of Winchester Paul Chamberlain Building

 

Skirting the Shadows Project in collaboration with Wessex Sound and Film Archive

We have been commissioned to create music to accompany 3 never before seen films from WW2 Spitfire Components Factories - from the Elliots Factory in Newbury. Autumn 2019 we will be touring to venues screening these films and tracking down the families of the people in the films.

This project will then tour to museums / schools and colleges with WFSA pop up cinema and our recorded music on DVD in association with the Music Production Course at The University of Winchester.
