There was a very bizarre Felix the Cat, which Peter Coldham accompanied in fittingly bizarre music. It was quasi-experimental but really really worked. All the more stunning when he told me that he'd only known about the gig the day before. The story was about the terrible conditions in Russia. Considering that this was the twenties, and knowing what we do now, I guess it wasn't so inaccurate.
The night concluded with Charlie Chaplin's "The Pawn Shop." Jon played superbly for this too. But Charlie has no place in my heart really. It's all full of Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd (SEXY!!)
Emily has also composed some settings of William Blake for voice and classical guitar, and her current project, other than this one, is composing incidental music for the Vectors of Tropical Disease for Resonance FM, something I hope to blog more fully about in the future. This one will be fascinating. She's just finished the louse, and is working on the bedbug now.
