Erbacce

erbacceBUGGERING BOLLOCKS II. There’s a Martin Evans of Powys, Wales on the Erbacce long short-list. 100 out of 8,000 entries. Powys isn’t that big a county. I feel I ought to know him.

Dolly Grip

“My life as a Dolly Grip” by Martin Evans comes out in paperback sometime. Two films in one, recorded at St. Asaph Cathedral yesterday – with 3 supremely talented opera soloists : Neil Balfour, Isabelle Peters & Alexandra Lowe singing from Cosi Fan Tuti with the consumately professional Annette Parri piano accompaniment.
One is to be a tail section to a 2 year long film project of which I’m embarrassed to say I am the subject. And the other is promo video for the singers involved. The amazing Rhys Edwards of Felinheli was the producer/director/camera. I pushed the trolley 😉operatics1

Numbers

A film-poem. Numbers stations, broadcasting on shortwave frequencies around the world were largely believed to be the work of cold war spy agencies. Today, they have all but stopped. This one, broadcasting in Welsh is an exception.

This film has just been accepted for screening at the Liberated Words “Utopia/Dystopia” event at Bath Fringe Festival in June.
