A somewhat strange (in an interesting way) set with Tansy Spinks as Lab of Sonic Possibilities, recorded at the Being Human Festival at the Horniman Museum and Gardens in November 2019, is now available on bandcamp.
Our theme for the day is “tea”, due to the fact of course that Horniman also founded one of the world’s largest tea trading companies at the time. You can see many tea plants at the gardens!
Tansy is reading from A Nice Cup of Tea by George Orwell whilst I have the pleasure of playing with tea related objects and contributing the odd line from Alice in Wonderland‘s Mad Hatter’s Tea party.
You can also hear sets including Douglas Benford & Adam Bohman, Marjorie Van Halteren, Ingrid Plum, Daniel Ross & Rosie Bergonzi, Lizzy Laurence, Luca Venerus & Andrea Corradi. https://divacontemporary.bandcamp.com/album/sounds-from-the-garden-bandstand
