Recording of Son et Lumiere Audio

by 52 Weeks of Art

On Tuesday 1st September David Harper visited the Birthplace Museum for the final recording session for the September event. The day was arranged to record poems, letters and extracts from Johnsons work which are to form layers of content for the light and sound performance. Thanks to Jane Gentles, David Titley, Ken Knowles and Stuart Goodwin who all volunteered to help woth the recordings. Ken took on the role of Johnson for a specific section of the dialogue and Stuart kindly agreed to read the narration of Johnsons life which will form part of the contextual elements of the production. The script was produced collaboratively between Peter Walker with assistance and dramatic input from Lichfield playright David Titley, who has also been of great support and a great source of information throughout the project.
