Collaborative recording weekend at the Merzbarn

This weekend I’m excited to be heading to the Lake District to Kurt Schwitters‘ original Merzbarn to collaborate with a group of other musicians and artists in recording an album. Organised by White Label Music and the Kurt Schwitters Foundation, the event is a tribute to the infamous dadaist, sound poet, painter and father of installation art. The resulting recordings will be released on CD later in the year.

On Saturday the participants will be giving some performances of both Schwitters’ work and some of our own compositions. In addition there will be a digital link up with artist Jack Ox at the Mesa Gallery in Los Alamos, New Mexico. More info on that parallel event here.

I’ll add documentation of the weekend and more info on the release in future posts.
