I had the vertiginous experience of DJing at the top of the mighty Shard!
Time Out says:
Pick your channel and choose your side as three DJs battle it out over separate wireless channels, playing the best in pop, rock and party classics, while you dance the night away at 1,000ft.
The next Shard dates are the 18th and 19th March, tickets and info to be found here.
I wrote the music to this short film by artist Lucy Mcrae about biologically enhanced beauty.
“We are living in an era of no rules; technology is corrupting nature’s ballot, forcing us to redefine our bodies’ limitations and boundaries,” says Lucy McRae, the skin-fixated artist and filmmaker whose cosmetic predictions are the subject of today’s film, Swallowable Parfum. “I have no doubt that we will be eating cosmetics and using color-changing skin technology. The fashion and pharmaceuticals market will merge, as fashion and technology is doing now.” Developed with synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy, the project explores the utopian possibility of a consumed capsule that synthesizes with the body to create a biologically enhanced scent. Individual to each wearer and reacting to stress, exercise or sexual arousal, McRae’s prototype provokes debate about the future of the body as a platform for technology.
Sci-Fi short ‘The Last Man’ has been put to bed and now i’m delighted to say i’m writing the music to Stella Feehily’s new play about the NHS, ‘This May Hurt A Bit’, directed by the legendary Max Stafford-Clark. So far, so fascinating.
The play starts touring Spring 2014.
You can find more information and tour dates on the Out Of Joint website.
