Nice Review from Clare Edwards of my Saturday night gig at Birmingham Cathedral – Musituality – It was being filmed so i’ll post some video soon.
Musituality « Clare Edwards
Well done to all involved – I thought it was a great achievement – and I look forward to seeing what you do next.
At ProjectXPresents we are especially passionate about music of all types for obvious reasons. Having worked with many of the venues in Digbeth, we were moved to shed light on the situation concerning noise abatement; the local authorities and new residents of Digbeth (many urban living apartments have arisen during the recent housing boom); and the plight of some (very reasonable) landlords.
A documentary detailing the shocking way that Birmingham’s vibrant culture is being degraded by the complaints of a vocal minority, poor regulation and lack of awareness.
Last November’s piece using infra red tracking and two of the dancers from written on the Body. The third dancer Jane Seddon and my step-niece Fern Burnett will feature in the logical progression of the piece for Xhibition, coming 9th May at the cross in Moseley.
Excerpt of a performance taken from Project X Presents: Digital Dystopia in Sept 2009. Coordinated by Leon Trimble with music by Rich Batsford, Choreography from Lisa Natasha Wetton and featuring Julia Griffin and Paris Thomas-Wade as dancers.
Heavy! What a line-up… OH. But I’ve been forbidden to let on…
even tho this is upstairs at the vic pub next to the alex theatre, it promises basementality, underground dance vibes. i’ve been building screens and getting some camera capture equipment for a live camera feed. we’re keeping it dark in there too, apart from the visuals of course. which will be dark.
The boys have given me a real nice write up on their blog and i’m excited. It’s on this Sat til 4am, but i wouldn’t get there too late as it’ll be ramming.
check their blog for more ambiguous messgaes. just know that the night’s already been recommended by dj magazine, so someone knows what’s happening. 😉

Strax at the Victoria | Rich Batsford
A good venue then for Strax which is a mash up of so many things. Leon (VJ Chromatouch) has an absolutely vast collection of music and moving images and is becoming very good at mixing them all up with the aid of vast quantities of technology and various guests
At ProjectXPresents we’ve been waiting for something like this since the beginning, a video that captures the spirit of what we do, and the guys who did the live filming for the vjs (lastphoenixfilms) did an interstellar job with the live feed, but also put tapes in the cameras whilst they did it. and they’re shit hot at editing too it seems.
…shows pretty much what everyone does both up to and during the show and in a short sharp amount of time. great stuff.
