Mark of the Beast

The Mark of the Beast performances

I have been working with Martin O’Connor on his spoken word performance The Mark of the Beast. The show is on from 13th – 15th April at Platform, Glasgow and in Edinburgh at the Scottish Storytelling Centre on 19th April.

This performance is a culmination of our research and development with the North East Recovery Cafes in Glasgow in 2016. The project was supported by Platform to Health and GRAND.

At that time, I composed a sound installation Good Days Bad Days, incorporating the many voices/stories of participant’s experiences. I have re-visited and re-composed that material for Martin’s solo show The Mark of the Beast.

Radiophrenia is currently broadcasting 24 Stops. It is very exciting to hear the chimes as they were intended when originally created by Sarah Tripp. Furthermore,  Radiophrenia 2016 festival is a perfect setting to listen to them, every hour on the hour for 24 hours amongst such a wealth of radio and sound art…

Following several months working with NERC’s six recovery cafes we are delighted to be presenting Good Days Bad Days sound installation at Platform Glasgow on 27th March.

Here’s a short excerpt LISTEN

This installation event brings to a close a research collaboration with Martin O’Connor that will feed into his Mark of the Beast poetry performance project at a future time.

Mark of the Beast - Martin O\'Connor

I’m excited to be collaborating with Martin O’Connor to develop his latest poetry performance project Mark of the Beast – a work inspired by Glasgow and its relationship with alcohol and addiction.

From November 2015 – March 2016 we are working with participants from six recovery cafes in the north east of Glasgow (NERC – North East Recovery Community) to develop the work, which will be crafted into a sound installation at Platform at the end of March 2016.
