  • Where The Heart Is - Age Concern collaborating artists exhibition

    Earlier this year I worked on a wonderful project, very close to my heart. Funded by Age Concern, this groundbreaking exhibition has brought together artists with residents in dementia care homes. I was asked on board by Jennifer Essex. She asked me to compose music using the voice recordings of dementia sufferers, creating a backdrop for her dance films. These will be shown as an installation in the Where the Heart Is exhibition at the Museum of Lancashire, Preston: OPENS 9th Oct. CLOSES 6th Dec. If you’re in the area at all, please check it out and help to share this event if you know anyone who is interested. 

    Thank you.
