The Quietus & Arts Council UK ‘Minor Characters’ project

Over June and July, I’m going to be producing some of this, at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool.

The acts involved have all been asked to come up with a song or piece of music inspired by a minor character from fiction. I’m going to be recording and mixing about half of it, and doing a bit of organising and helping out with the rest.

Have been doing pre-prod for a while, and demos and snippets heard so far are very exciting. Can’t say too much right now, but here’s a photo of me and John Doran doing some highly industrious work with The Lone Taxidermist. As you can see, he’s made a large pot of tea and had his head converted into a Theremin; there’s no doubting that level of commitment.
