Last week I had the pleasure of taking my mobile recording rig to an unusual space… 1 Silver Road, in Lewisham, South East London.
1 Silver Road is a steel water tank that used to supply the neighbouring housing estates and is now being used as an experimental music and performance venue, with an aim to encourage innovative experiments in sound and vision.
I was called in capture a 3 piece ensemble featuring Guido Spannochi, Saul Eisenberg and percussionist Giles. Saul currently has a project documenting unusual spaces in London. And this performance featured instruments he had made himself along with traditional acoustic instruments and found objects.
The site is soon to be demolished possibly to make way for some more expensive London real estate. I’m glad I had the chance to record such an interesting group in such and unusual space!
