The Debris Field
A full-length score written for a 40-minute poetry piece for the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic., in collaboration with poets Simon Barroclough, Isobel Dixon and Chris McCabe and filmmaker Jack Wake-Walker. Debuted to a sold-out crowd at the BFI in London.
"After a sell-out performance of Chris McCabe’s Shad Thames, Broken Wharf at the London Word Festival and packed audiences at the BFI, Whitechapel, Latitude and StAnza for Simon Barraclough’s Psycho Poetica (which included McCabe and Dixon), the three combined poetic forces again in 2012. They were joined by Oli Barrett of Bleeding Heart Narrative, who composed music for both previous projects, and Jack Wake-Walker who made the Shad Thames film. The creative outcome was the BFI’s full-house premiere of The Debris Field–Salvaging the Titanic in Word, Sound and Image in April 2012. " (listing from the performance at London's Rich Mix)
