Medsmama, by Elbow Room dance company.

Based in Aberdeen, but exploring the Armenian ancestry of its director, Ani Tchakmakdian. A mixed media performance with Video by John McGeogh, Co-devised with John Harvey.

During research for this piece I traveled to Yerevan and recorded some improvisations and tunes with top Armenian Folk Musicians from Shogakn Ensemble. Whilst the Dance piece toured with recorded music, plans exist to tour this collaboration as a music show. Most of this music is not for sale but demo copies for interested parties can be made available.

Some incidentall/accidental music made with Armenian folk musicians and laptop electronics is available to buy, as are other theatre scores, for £5 inc. p&p, email for orders.

I have worked with many different Dancers from a wide range of styles .

These are some images from Doh Theatre St. Petersberg who used my music a lot. I performed live with some shows such as Schule der Engel in which I also wrote and performed some monologues and which we also took to Russia.

A selection of compositions for theatre is available to buy for £5 inc. p&p, email for orders.

   
Claire Russ Ensemble

we collaborated for many years on at least 5 shows and many workshops . Saucyness and sensuality were recurring themes . Much in evidence on "The tail wagging the dog" see releases

With Claire Russ I also began to take workshops seriously and to realise how teaching can inform and enrich your work. She organised extensive teaching programs (we called it "Special Needs settings" in those days) alongside of our touring shows from which I learned a great deal.

The soundtrack to this show was made entirely from live sampling of old 45s through a Dansette record player. Yes, a bit like Phil Jeck only funnier.

Resonance 2 .

Music for Echo Echo tended to be live to allow for improvisation and interaction. Pulse being the exception which was choreographed to a pre-recorded commisioned composition which is available.
