Work with Caroline Bergvall

I first met Caroline on Ian Macmillan’s radio 3 show, the Verb, in the fantasyland of Manchester Media City.

A little while later she was looking for someone to speak about birds and their language and thus I joined some of her conference performances.

Conference (after Attar)
Whitstable Biennale 2018

Conference (after Sweeney)
International Literature Festival Dublin 2019

An improvised conversational performance with audience, involving maybe poetry, music or singing and sound treatments, covering birds, migration and language. For Dublin, Caroline worked with myself and sound artist Rob Blaizey to create an accompanying sound piece with my birds of passage soundscapes from the west coast of Ireland.
