I have a special affection for this audiopiece around love, erotics and love as practice. Speaking it while writing it as a recording. Now programmed as part of “Breathe In, Breathe Out”, a new programme of displays within their Treasures Gallery dedicated to exploring new ways of experiencing words. Beat the Summer heat and sit back and enjoy the sounds in this cool and peaceful room.
The week’s theme is “Wild Water”. I play pieces from Nattsong and describe my current process with this work. Also on the prog: poets Ruth padel w composer Vik Sharma, & William Burns.
