Dark Nights of Poetry at Year’s End

As the year draws to a close I’m reading more poetry and taking the chance to review what I’ve read this year.

TS Eliot’s Four Quartets has been my go to poem of the year, I was reading it over summer, I really like the abstraction of this work. If you don’t know it look it up, there’s also a great rendition of Eliot’s work read by Sir Alec Guiness.

I hope and aim to be even more creative in the new year and poetry is going to be a part of that.

Both reading and writing.

Being Creative

Being creative is a challenge! Just remaining motivated on a daily basis in its self can be tough.

I’ve been inspired by writing poetry and song writing recently which is a great outlet for my creativity. My design work is mainly visual and working on creative writing on a daily basis is a very complimentary exercise.

I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of creating something from a blank page, or digital screen. For some that would be a situation they would never chose to be in but not for me.

So if your a creative reading this please be inspired and I can really recommend using different creative techniques to enhance your creative practice.

Summer

It’s been a great summer so far, I hope that you are enjoying it! I’ve been busy creating video and capturing images whilst on my travels. I now have the use of a campervan which makes for a brilliant base for exploring, I’ll be uploading more work when the production phase is completed.

Until then, have fun in the sun!

Checking In

Just checking in after taking a few weeks off for my summer holiday, I’ve been traveling around the UK in my great little camper van. Its a great form of transport, very self contained and a great base for walking and exploring.

I’ve captured some interesting footage and I’ve managed to read many more poems to revive my video poems project which I’ll be continuing with this autumn/winter. As ever I’ll post up on here my progress and when I’ve produced further work.

Winter Light

There is some great low winter light at the moment, very moody and warm when the sun is low. If your willing to brave the cold winter winds I’d encourage you to head out there with your camera and capture some images or video!

Happy creating!

Happy New Year – with a kiss…

Happy New Year and I hope that 2015 is a creative one for you all!

I’m still on my poem/video project and I’ve been reading more WW1/WW2 poems over the xmas break. Its quite challenging to get suitable imagery for these works but I have a few ideas that I’m working on.

One poem that I’d really like to produce a video for is “The Kiss” by Siegfried Sassoon, this is pretty strong stuff, as is most WW1 poetry. Very moody indeed.

It’s an absolute classic and I hope to be filming this one soon!

Music with Pat

I’m currently working on a music project with creative force that is Pat Turner Lee. We’re getting a set together for a new and experimental music project.

We’re also creating some backing music for a spoken word artist which we’re playing live with at a gig in Brighton in December. I’m playing bass guitar on this music, its great to play such a fine instrument again after so many years.

Music and Video

I’ve just started playing bass guitar again after many years of not playing or being involved with bands and music projects. Its good to be out there playing again after so long…

One of my latest music projects is a collaboration with Pat Turner-Lee who is a totally creative force in his own right.

We’re putting together a music/art installation project which will have video projection as we play live in a totally transformed environment.

I’ll update on progress here, it feels good to create with music again.
