Music Concrete

‘I’m Gonna File My Claim’ – Marilyn Monroe


Today featured: The Press, some photographs and the Red Mount Chapel.


The early part of the day was spent experimenting in special sounds to create MUSIC CONCRETE with Vlad Porton.  It was exciting.




‘Gentlemen Take Polaroids’ – Japan


Today, principal actors Ben Fletcher (Macbeth), Donna Davidson (Lady Macbeth) and myself (as King Duncan), went to the Red Mount Chapel in The Walks (where the outdoor Macbeth will be performed on Hallowe’en – on my specially designed and built stage!) to pose and have our photographs taken by the local Press.  They put us in action poses, i.e. Mr + Mrs Macbeth killing me!  And in the background we had Jolene Morse, pretending to be the fiddler that supposedly haunts the Red Mount.  The papers involved were THE LYNN NEWS AND ADVERTISER and THE EASTERN DAILY PRESS.  Publicity Officer Jodie Ratcliffe gave the reporters all the INFO.  Marco (a photography student who’s involved with the show as part of his Electives) also took some photos for publicity displays.  It was fun, but it was windy.




‘Golden Brown’ – The Stranglers


Shelley has agreed to build a model of my preliminary indoor set design over the weekend.  She has proven to be a real blessing, as ‘group’ morale was slowly flagging, possibly due to bad communication and leadership on my part and a bunch of unenthusiastic colleagues.
