It’s been a long time since I was last on a canal boat, but, as this year was a somewhat significant birthday it seemed like a good idea to celebrate with a few days away on a narrowboat with some good friends.
The boat was May, the pace was slow, and the beer was flowing! Basically, it was a good choice and I’m pretty sure that everyone had a grand time. Perhaps I’ll do it again for another ‘significant’ birthday.
Just some pictures from a week ago when I went to see Deerful at the Shackleton Arms.
I’ve talked about the school of noise before. What they do is incredible, and the two videos above just show a little of what they can achieve in getting kids to experiment with sound.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with them at the Festival of Imagination a couple of weeks ago, and if you ever get the chance to see them in action I’d recommend taking a look.
If you want to know more about them, check out their site schoolofnoise.com, and also the PalmSounds page about them here.
It is a truly amazing thing that Disquiet has been going for 19 years now. I’m in awe. To maintain and develop such and amazing site for that long is a real achievement. I have to take my hat off to Marc for doing it.
Of course he has the best taste too, his choice of people to interview is impeccable! Of course I would say that, wouldn’t I!
Mr Concretedog (Jo to his friends) has posted this lovely piece about the SoundLab Play Space. It was great, and it’s lovely to know that friends think the same way. He’s posted some great pictures in the post too.
