CYMBOMUTE.COM

In a new collaboration with filmmaker & photographer Nick Leyland, I have recently co-produced content for Manchester company, CYMBOMUTE. Producing video and product photography content for this e-commerce business was a real joy and we are pleased that Hugh, founder and director of CYMBOMUTE, is happy with the results. We had a great time working together and with Hugh and are pretty excited about future collaborations

All Other Things Being Equal at The Manchester Museum

At last, All Other Things Being Equal is set to open on 1st December 2012 and will run until 2nd June 2013.

The exhibition is a based on the research and work of scientist and photographer Johan Oldekop, including sounds by me. For this exhibition I have attempted to create an immersive quad channel sound piece that aims to place the listener on the fragile line between two very different, yet very connected, sonic environments. To get an idea of the kinds of sounds that I recorded on location and that have made the final mix, check out my project page.

Visit The Manchester Museum to find out more information, opening times and directions.

Kinokologue at John Rylands Library in Manchester

I’m heading back to Manchester in just over a week and feeling pretty excited to visit Kinokophone’s latest piece of work, the Kinokologue ‘a cabinet of sonic curiosities explored through the ears, eyes and the imagination’.

I was lucky enough to contribute a little to the original Kinokologue last year, but the waves I’m feeling through the mycelium this time round suggest huge movements in the sonic archive and for all Kinokophone activities including their collective listening event, Kinokophonography.

Amanda, Mike & Takashi with the Kinokologue:

Look Back in Anger – The Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama

What’s On

Friday 16th September 2011

Look Back In Anger

Blackhand Productions bring this ground breaking play by John Osborne to The Martin Harris Centre in Manchester.

England, late 1950’s. Jimmy Porter, working class and university educated, lives in a one-room attic flat with Alison, his upper-middle class wife, and their gentle-tempered friend Cliff. Their already claustrophobic relationship is further unravelled by the arrival of Alison’s childhood friend Helena…

‘Look Back in Anger’ encapsulates the disaffection of post-war British youth, a revolt against political and intellectual inertia, a questioning of middle-class values and the frustration of having a university education and nowhere to go.

 

Please note there is smoking on stage throughout the production

Sound Design for John Osborne’s ‘Look Back in Anger’…

I am currently working with Blackhand Productions for their September run of ‘Look Back in Anger’ by John Osborne and although I don’t think of myself as an angry man, I am a man of the Midlands and of Manchester so know their sound well…
