Bertie and Mandy of The Blue Army Craft Group live in New Parks Library a session of CAGED - The Sound of New Parks with artist producer Sound scientists I-mitri CounterAction (Dimitris Moraitis) and Little Onion (Paul Conneally).
The push pad is loaded with found sounds - treated and raw - recorded in and around New Parks Library in Leicester by The Blue Army Craft Group who carry on crocheting as The Sound experimentation improvisation and composition takes place. Each member of the crochet gang coming out in pairs to work with I-mitri as Little Onion chats with them about John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, silence, noise and ghosts.
The work is ongoing and supported by Soft Touch Arts, Leicester City Council and Arts Council England.
The work will extend from the adult community into local schools, pre-schools and other community locations.
The work grows out of Involuntary Painting 1 & 2 New Parks : New York with New York based artist Millree Hughes and Leicester based artist Paul Conneally.
