I have collaborated with B-Arts in Stoke-On-Trent on a number of projects, including:

‘Appetite’ (2013) Composer, Musical Director and facilitator for a series of site specific outdoor performances with B-Arts, looking at the cultural history of three of parks in Stoke on Trent. We created a cycle of twelve songs that were performed by a costumed band of up to ten people of all levels of experience in the parks themselves. 5 of the songs have recently been recorded.

‘Growing Hearts and Minds’ (2011), a residency with B-Arts in Stoke-on- Trent, which created a songs and a series of performances with a variety of participants looking at the connection between mental health and the environment. This resulted in a cycle of songs called ‘Down To The Roots’ created and performed by the ‘Northwood Park Scratch Band’, who came together during the course of the residency. These songs were recorded and are available on CD with a book of the whole project.

The songs below are taken from both projects, as well as other projects based on the same process:
