Remembering Night Painting & A Thanks to All.

Remembering the magical window of lifted lockdown evenings at Snape Maltings in December 2020.
Harry Young (MD Snape Maltings) took a courageous leap in the dark to host my projection and sound installation. ESP studio, Stuart Harris, Dave Keech, and Simon Reed were co-conspirators with excellent projection know-how.
Thanks again to the brilliant Britten Pears team – Tom Taylor, Geoff, and all the riggers who created the nighttime event ‘Night Paintings’ that brought people outdoors for the first time in months.
Thanks too to Nitin Sawhney, James Ribbans, Gavin Bush, and Harry Timson for collaborating on the music & soundscape.
Mostly I have my wonderful Renata Danobeitia to thank for all the love and support.
