Patrick Farmer has been working with Sound and Music and the Forestry Commission for the last two years. He has been taking sporadic trips up to Grizedale in the Lake District, staying in a log cabin, watching Luis Buñuel films over and over, writing his third publication, yew grotesque, and composing a series of event based prose scores for a performance in Lancaster, with Hughes, Rodgers, and Stephen Cornford, later on this year.
Farmer, Hughes and Rodgers will take up residence in the Project Space for four days, they will spend time discussing and developing Farmer's compositions, performing them into the wall, so to speak.
This residency will culminate in a free performance, talk, or something else. More info TBA.
Door Times : 10am - 7pm daily
