My bit in the Didsbury Arts Festival, which runs at various venues until 30th June, is ‘A Proclamation’. It’s another piece about silence and is about… well, why don’t you just read the leaflet? If you want a pdf of it please message me, if you want a print copy ask me nicely. It’s displayed in the side room at Home Community Cafe, which is part of the Emmanuel Church, 6 Barlow Moor Rd, Manchester M20 6TR (not open weekends) and is being shown alongside photographs by Sue Langford.

A new video which features several of my pieces about silence, including an explanation of ‘A Proclamation’, and ‘All Quiet’, which I did for the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War. It also includes some field recordings of places where it should be quiet but is fekkin’ noisy: The Whispering Gallery at St. Paul’s Cathedral, the reading room of Manchester Central Library and Tate Britain and last but by no means least, ‘100 Breaths Per Minute’.
