Come September first I’ll begin a new residency with the lovely folks at CACIS, the sustainability oriented art centre north of Barcelona. I’ve made some large promises with my drawings, imagining a big, woven facade (see poster below) as a centrepiece for a sound installation called ‘L’Oracle’ (‘the Oracle’ for those of you who skipped grade 6 French). My unbelievable band, the LFM will join the fun in late September, in time to perform a show or two before we retire to a big house in Barcelona for some very serious lounging.
It will be a busy month. I’ve got plans to make another horn from juniper wood, a piece set aside by my friend, Thomas, the incredible woodsmith in Artes. There are shows to plan, posters to make, and sticks to collect and shape. As with all international plans, the reality will differ some from my imagined journey. But this is where it begins – with a drawing and a thought. Somebody wish me luck
