3:25 Introduction by Ms. Shannon
3:30 A Unique Sound Performance by Matt Dalby
Matt is a unique performer. He deconstructs words into sounds, and treats sounds like syllables. A poet, but also a sound artist, each time I’ve seen him it’s been a different, unique piece. As a long time admirer of his work I’m so pleased he’s agreed to perform at this event.
Recent performances from Matt at the Crescent in Salford can be listened to here.
3:50 Films I
“As part of the Tower of Babel Festival at Contact Theatre , Community Arts Northwest ran a film cabaret over a weekend at the Lets Go Global studio in Old Trafford. The weekend was designed to bring together asylum seekers, refugees and filmmakers.”
4:00 Adrian Slatcher reads from “Extracts from Levona” – and answers questions about the work.
He can be heard reading (juxtaposition #4) here.
4:30 Films II
4:40 This is Chichi
“This is Chichi is a singer songwriter, girl guitarist and multi-instrumentalist from Manchester, UK. She creates original songs on the six-string by blending unusual songcraft with a unique take on harmony and melody.”
