Iâ€™m hugely nervous and excited to announce that on Saturday 20th October Iâ€™ll be performing A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes at The Union Chapel, Islington with the 6-piece experimental contemporary music ensemble, Jetsam.Â This atmospheric musical suite is inspired by my short story of the same name and also pieces from book Iâ€™m writing for Influx Press due in 2013.
Combining music and spoken word, ‘A Dreamlife of Hackney Marshes’ is a hymn to Hackney and Walthamstow Marshes; a re-awakening of the old river Lea, a love song to a pylon; a bomb blast beneath the football pitches; an ode to a pigeon hideout; a meditation on the ruins of times gone by.
Jetsamâ€™s score is dark, complex and uncompromising. It just begs to be heard in the incredible surroundings of the Union Chapel.
The performance is from 12-2pm. This is the debut outing for this piece, so it would be great to see you there and hear your thoughts.
