Collaborative musical composition, spread across the campus of a school near Southampton, UK. Working as composer in residence at Brookfield School, I led the creation of this fantastic interactive sound art work, now on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=brookfield.notours.org&hl=en

Wow, or Fucking HELL, no comments yet - after six years' posting - this is an incredible innovation in the experience of live art, of performance, an embodied, disembodied thing at once. The video is a triumph in terms of reaching out to new audiences - I so much hope that Hentschalger's work will achieve maximum exposure at some soon moment. My compositional concerns with sonic and musical space have been deeply inspired by this video.

My feeling is this captures the terrible sadness of the song with such intense control, so beautiful. Nina's Bach influences exerting attenuated contrapuntal structures between piano hands and guitar and bass, the drums a rock solid driver throughout. I just wish they took longer to get there. Makes me cry every time I hear it.

Hidden depths - a review of "Written in Water"
Last week I spent a sunny afternoon in Gosport trying out
Ben Mawson’s sound experience package for Gosport, Written in Water.   On the face of it, it’s a simple enough
idea.  You walk round Gosport with a
small handset encased in a plastic box and mp3 styl...
