Really excited to announce that I will be collaborating with a local performer David Pearson to develop his concept for an interactive, cross-media play focusing on the musical journey of Scott Walker.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the work of Scott Walker, he is considered somewhat an enigma of the music scene – starting out with early success with the pop group The Walker Brothers in the 1960s. Since the mid 1970s his music has become more experimental in nature and is broadly labelled as ‘avant garde’. He is also famous because of his distinctive voice. Mr wikipedia says:
He is noted for his distinctive baritone voice and for the unorthodox career path which has taken him from 1960s pop icon to 21st century avant-garde musician
Next Saturday we will be workshopping David’s idea at the Black Hole Theatre “your Work In Focus” workshops at the Street Theatre.
In the meantime here is a documentary about Scott Walker.
Will keep you posted:-)
