Portions of the performance were recorded on tape by Kieron Piercy to be cut up and re-assembled later.Kieron's reel to reel set up.


The night brought together artists, musicians and filmmakers in collaboration - a direct response to the current crisis...and a chance to dance

Second collaboration of the night saw Kevin Sanders and Andrew Forknell perform using an array of instruments, contact mics and tapes.
"Elequently Dumb clarinet and Violin squarks squeaks and skronks."
