Thank you Andrew Leslie Hooker for answering the Facebook challenge and providing this striking poster, it may need updating with a few details but I wanted to share it with you as-it looks cool-and I need to get on and confirm details. I am really thrilled at all the submissions from you characters and I think this November event will be astounding. Greg Bevan is assembling a video montage of experimental videos to be screened alongside performers-updates will come.
My indecisiveness tries to get the better of me, and yet I resist it and dip toes if not fully plunge. April 3rd Taflwn Sain, let us see noisemakers, sonic alchemists, improvisers, modular freaks & electroacousticians, let us eat cake….
I was just updating a few typos! Please don’t notice any more…First coffee of the day prompts me: have you got any blogs or links I should be linking to here? Let me know. I have reconnected with Larkfall and it’s an immense resource, but having reawakened I am sure that there is much more I can turn to with interest….
