A shameful lack of bloggery going on here but here’s a story worth telling.

For Coastal Currents 2018 i was approached by artist Becky Beasley to add some music to a project that involved Wow & Flutter record shop

In years gone by the shop had served as HQ of the suffragettes and an unusual outlet for ornamental seaweed. I had just completed a watery music project concerning Romney Marsh, which Becky felt the sound was ‘seaweedy’ enough to use on her ambitious take-away object; a 12” vinyl record with an information booklet about the previous lives of the shop.

I made a 2o minute mix condensed from Sewer Songs which i also performed* in the shop for the exhibition opening.
