Cheltenham Jazz Festival

Like Jazz? Like genetics? Like animated squares (or Tetris with dinosaurs) ? Perfect! Then please come along to Animation Migration at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival this coming saturday.

Me and fantastic jazz musican Kit Downes were asked by the Wellcome Trust to create an animated musical adventure exploring the concept of DNA migration. We were aided in our experiment by super scientist Adam Rutherford (who you can see on his Gene Code series on the bbc).....if you want to see what we came up with (and also to ask Adam complicated questions about evolution) please come!

The rather amazing Bruce Cameron helped bring evolution to life in less than a month...three cheers for Bruce!

I got a red envelope in the post last week....and that can only mean good things! It was a concertina print of houses from the wonderful Gaia! Three great minds think alike and I have put it with my longhorse concertina and also Thereza's amazing concertina....I'm sure something ace will happen now they are all together....
