Let’s make an album! Right here in the back yard!

So first stop is definitely Glasgow.  I’ve booked a train ticket.  Otherwise today I’m mostly discarding things that no longer serve me… 


The two-day open-house creative jam that Martyn had suggested has morphed through our patented process of conversation, reflection and further conversation 😉 into a project to record an album of new and improvised music (Martyn’s just talked about it in an e-mail as “jazz meets folk meets classical crossover-ish with lots of improvisation”) in 48 hours.

The initial and provisional theme is Revisiting Memories and Learning to Play Again (note the (NOT) Very Important Capitalisation that I’ve just added…).  

Anyway, it’ll be a scream with the people we have involved already, and we have the equipment to make the final recording, but if you want to come along (near Queen’s Park) and take part for any of it, learn with us about co-creation, improvisation and just flippin’ doin’ it – just let me or Martyn know. Bring your talent, food, drink, musical instruments and documentation tools, but overall come with the spirit of fun and willingness to learn together.
