Part one - London
Today I visit dalgarno way the street I grew up on, I walk pass my first primary school and wormwood scrubs and will be checking out the building s they've put in place of the community centre I grew up in. It's been 27 yrs since I've been back.
Monday I visited the Ai Wei Wei exhibition which was really interesting - I found I could relate to his cathartic acts of making work of tge places that have been destroyed.
Yesterday I attended the field recording course at Lux studios learning about various mics and programs - think I learnt so much in the 7 hrs - really excellent teacher is Edward Lucas!
Another great thing from the day was clicking with a brilliant London bassed artist named Sabrina Osbourn. Definatly will be keeping in touch !
I'll be uploading better high quilty images when I return.
Shame about the rain to day and bring the wrong shoes!!! (Needed to travel light!)
