about

Earlier this year, I was asked to perform two solo shows in Glasgow. The first was for the ‘Music for Language’ Festival and the second, as support to Duane Pitre at the Old Hairdressers venue.

As these were my first solo performances, I felt it important to rehearse ☺

To convince myself I could ‘get away with it’, I thought it useful to record the work and reflect upon it later, with a view to improvising around these recorded ideas... on stage… come the day.

‘Syrus’ and ‘Five Perspectives’ made it to both shows, while ‘10th Observation’ and ‘I Am Determined to See’ will hopefully see the light of day in the near future.

Please feel free to download, upload, feedback and share it all about.

Track Name: I Am Determined to See (Live Rehearsal for Old Hairdressers) Version 2
I am determined to see
The early journey, the blessing of
sunrise

I am determined to see
The journey here
Is always longer

I am determined to see
The constancy of a goodbye

I am determined to see

I am determined to see
The early journey, the blessing of
sunrise

I am determined to see
To be running in green
Is an early pleasure

I am determined to see
Life in constant adjustment

I am determined to see
Seeking
What belongs to me

I am determined to see
The constancy of goodbye

I am determined to see
The early journey, the blessing of
Sunrise

I am determined to see
Life in constant adjustment

I am determined to see
When tiredness takes hold
There is truth... in tears
Track Name: Syrus (Live Rehearsal for Old Hairdressers) Version 1

Track Name: Five Perspectives (Live Rehearsal for Old Hairdressers) Version 1
I was born to silence
In the old hall gardens
In the night time moon-glade
To the scent of blossoms
By the giant hedgerow
And the sun breaks gently
Near the bleached white building
Dreams a man who's walking
On the snapshot beach side
Swoops a blue black swallow
In the countryside
I was born to silence
I was born to silence
I was born to silence
Track Name: The 10th Observation (Live Rehearsal for Old Hairdressers)
Open and closed.
A manner of operation.
Incomprehensible.
The highest purpose: no purpose at all

Accord with the
present. Absent
the inherently indeterminate,
the unpredictable.
Nature of nature.

Hidden noise combines
the edge of
wheel and rack.
Readymade shadows on the wall.
Glass compositions

A mind already knows
the habitual way of seeing things.
Awaken... senses to invisible
mending, of
nature to nature

A manner of operation
incomprehensible.
The highest purpose, no purpose at all
