"We’re not sure whether he was a painter or a percussionist first, only that he has been doing this for quite a long time and is incredibly talented.....But whether the cover draws the attention to the music, the music to the art, or the titles to the work of others, all components work in connection ~ like an assemblage or a collage. The circle is complete." - Richard Allen, A CLOSER LISTEN

At the opening of my solo visual art exhibition at Déda, Derby, January 11th 2020, I did a solo percussion performance.

I used drums, cymbals, gongs, bowls, home-made instruments and objects. The performance consisted of 10 short sound ‘sketches’, each one dedicated to a different artist that has meant a lot to me in my artistic development.

I am always looking for processes that in some way fuse my love of sound and the visual art medium. So hopefully each percussion ‘sketch’ appropriately invokes the spirit of each artist with my personal sound interpretation.

Thanks to Chris White at Electric Fields studios in Bretby, Derbyshire for the live recording and for editing this set, to Déda and Vitor Azevedo, who curated the exhibition.

The image is one of my paintings in the Derby show: “Invocation” - in acrylics, graphite and inks.
