I would not speak for very long even on the secret telephone to you. Because even that can be broken.
Many thanks to Re-Dock, Circuit and friends!

Telegraphs I is a video / performance piece first performed at The Royal Standard, Liverpool, February 6th 2015 as part of BamBamBam.
Voices by Chloe Mullett and Biltone.
Two video loops made from found 8mm film. Two audio loops of scripted voices. Four audio loops of music. All loops are roughly 2 minutes long, but differ in length by up to 3 seconds, so the elements interweave and overlap. Meaning is lost and communication becomes impossible.
Additional musical elements recorded live at The Royal Standard.
Thanks to Chloe Mullett and Biltone for doing voices and being open-minded.
Thanks to The Royal Standard for giving me the opportunity to create and perform this piece.
I was very pleased to be asked by filmmaker Adam Scovell to contribute the music to his film ‘Weirdstone (for Alan Garner)’; the film explores the landscape associated with the Cheshire author. The music is a re-recorded version of Levers taken from WREATHS.

WREATHS is the second of a trilogy of pieces written for live performance.
Why can’t you just put it in the bin? It was rubbish anyway.
