Additional Information

I was commissioned by Olympics Music Foundation to create a selection of sound works for Making Manchester, a multi-media performance  exploring real-life stories of migration to the UK. Using live music, poetry and physical theatre, the work explores how these unique family histories, and communities' shared experiences of migration, are woven into the socio-cultural fabric of the city and its people. I recorded 60 pupils from Dean Trust Ardwick (DTA) secondary school, telling their families migration stories. From these recordings I made 4 short pieces relating to the different sections of the performance - home, travelling, arriving & Manchester.
