Yorkshire wanderings

Posted on

You may have noticed that I like to have a wander around some strange places it may seem. There are things to notice that can give joy. Where a place has some history and shows a life lived then there is something, at least for me, to gain and enjoy. Distress, age and even dereliction can say a lot, particularly when contrasted close by by tidier, more recent building. You can find something in things discarded as well as those things pristine and new. Why not take a wander and just look at the sorts of things you would normally ignore.

Getting around performing with the Rite Trax crew is a real joy for me – places, people, music, art, poetry. Each of these strands gives something real for me. I ended up in Scarborough the other week. The drive there and back was as much a joy, having taken a wrong turn we went through a pile of villages and small towns – North yorkshire. We had the chance to chat, of course I told some incredible stories (I have that most delightful of senses of humour, a grandad’s).

Cranni – Plot 22 – the adventure, talent developes

Posted on

Down at Plot 22, the venue created by Rite Trax the jourbey developes for Cranni, a musical adventure centres around Nigel Cranswick. Coming soon there will be an ep and then, it is hoped, at least 3 albums. I will be supplying the visuals for the opening event – 7th September, Cubanos, Sheffield.  The whole story, though, is so much more interesting, some of which you can find on the Cranni blog – the english version and the dutch version – see below. That in itself is a little odd – a musical project being pursued in both languages.

Rite trax via Plot 22, the venue and studio space down by the old markets in Sheffield, is helping a whole range of creatives and performers with their art, events, development. Futurhood av and F4mmedia (both me) are there to help as well, providing a range of help and support, products and services.

You may have noticed that I have quite particular tastes in the visual:

  • I have a love of particular styles of building, those with some age, those with a clear and simple style but also not too glassy unless they reflects well, the derelict, those with colour, texture and real individuality

Days wandering

Posted on

You can be surprised when you go out and about for a wander. I went to visit my daughter in Derby the other day. It was such a joy seeing her and then we added to that by taking a good walk around parts of the city centre. I had few expectations of Derby as a city and was really surprised. We managed to find a whole raft of interesting little alleyways, the odd arcade, nice pubs, cafes and more – art shops included.

I have a love of places where history has added texture to what is around you, even better when that texture still has life and is felt and enjoyed.

Sometimes if you open the door to a new memory it will serve you for a long time. If that door and what surrounds it has a history placed well within the present it can mean something more.

Jericoacoara, Radio Garden, trip hop and the world

Posted on Updated on

You chance upon one thing, which leads you to another, which takes you on somewhere else and the journey is …

 

I chanced upon this website offering up radio station listening to stattions all over the world. I found a particular station, it seems based in northern Brazil in Jericoacoara. I thought that I would explore via google maps and found what is a most remarkable place. With the most incredible beaches in front of me, then shops, streets and more reminding me of my time in Africa with trip hop playing in the background … I was transported to feelings of real comfort and joy in places such as the Harley in Sheffield, back some years ago, along with the joys of discovering a whole variety of new, gentle, thoughtful and imaginative sounds and beats. There was the subdued lighting and relaxed joy of those venues, good drinks, sweet beats. Then in front of me were the memories of times in Lesotho, gentler times, good people, warmth, physical and emotional (even though there was a war going on).

I have even got to the point of looking for work in the place. Somewhow I think I might enjoy the place. For me, as well, the music on the radio station fits in a peculiar way. It is not the local music – forro! Nor is it particularly south american, but the trip hop being played had all of the gentle imagination and subtle emotion that goes with a very distinct, warm sunset which is itself bracketed by a day of heat, gentle walking, getting on with things, and then a night of drinks, dance and food, with its ease in and ease out moments (so trip hop), then bed at ridiculous o’clock.
