Week beginning 7th November

By the end of the week the main body of the work has been completed. The music is finished and I have a copy of the work on dvd which is ready. I just need to watch it a few times to check there are no faults in playback etc.

All the other elements are coming together, there are a few things to finish off but most of the work is complete.

On Monday or Tuesday I will be setting up the work with Richard Jones at the x-centre in time for the start on Wednesday.

Week beginning 31st October

The week started with a concentration on practical issues. On Monday I finally got to visit the X-centre and had a look round at the space and the equipment etc that would be available for the installation. It all looks very promising. Also on Monday I had a phone call from BBC Devon regarding their online coverage of the event – by Monday evening the web page was complete and hopefully this will attract the attention of more people.

The music has continued to develop – but there is still more to be done although by the end of the week I have an almost finished version. This means that I have failed to meet the target of 4th November but the work is close to completion and should be ready by the end of next week (still in plenty of time!)

On Friday 4th I, along with the other award winners went to the Guildhall to be presented with our cheques by the Mayor. I was also asked to make a short acceptance speech on behalf of all the award winners which went ok.

I’m entering the last few stages now and there is still a fair amount to do. The main part of the installation (the music and video) is almost complete but there is still a lot more work to be done on publicity and the other elements of the installation (text, pictures etc).

Week beginning 24th October

Still continuing to work on two fronts, the publicity and the music.
The poster has been put up in a few places, I have continued to email people about the project – this has resulted in a message from Devon online who want to do an article on their web page for next week. I have also been asked to make a short speech at the award ceremony on Friday of next week!

I have changed the music around so that the original opening section is now the final section and the mirrored section is at the start of the piece. I have also added a few processed elements into the centre section where I felt the music needed a little bit more. I’m fairly happy with the way it’s progressing so far – I have a couple of ideas to try out over this week but my target is to have the work completed by Friday 4th November so that I have plenty of time to concentrate on the practical and administrative elements.
