A friend used to run a nightclub in Wales, and I remember a drunken afternoon with students in the empty club and him asking me my choice of music to play really loud through the system. So I gave them a cd of my favourite- Scelsi's Uaxuctum. I walked around the dancefloor in the dark and it was unforgettable! I also remember playing Prenderecki's Threnody, though I think they were choosing Roni Size!
No art for this one, but one of the most sublime things I have heard from a trumpet! I remember watching this on telly on the night and being awestruck. Qigang was a pupil of Messiaen and it shines through here, the master would have been so proud! Bravo Alison Balsom!
One of my drawings from 2008, scanned for the first time. This was the best drawing from the books I made. I saw the spectres as these almost transparent abstract points, there are more images in an earlier post ( just type spectres in the search box).
