Flights of sound was great fun and was an intimate close to the Tatton Biennial. It was a pleasure to have such committed performances from Tom McKinney and Jane Chapman and I was particularly please to hear A Fire-Island Sky at its extremely delayed premiere played twice in two beautiful Tatton Rooms. I don’t have any images of that but I do have some others including Aura’s spectacular graphic score which provided the backbone to Jane’s improvisation. It was lowered and raised by means of a bespoke cast iron hand-wound contraption and was an affecting contrast with Tatton’s splendour, faded or otherwise.
