WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We are also looking for storytellers to contribute to our Tales for the Longest Night project – tales of haunting, ghosts, apparitions and the supernatural which we are gathering over October to be performed with live scores by us at Durlston Castle and other atmospheric venues.

For a sense of how stories, music and field recordings can work beautifully, listen to our Sound Journeys of Dorset, made in collaboration with BBC radio producer, Sarah Cuddon.

Sarah also used our music for her contribution to award-winning Radio 4 programme Shortcuts, this month devoted to surrealist Leonora Carrington.

Finally, this summer we released our own surreal sci-fi short Pedalo, featuring Private Grey Owl/ Pedalo from the Shortcuts piece & illustration by Hannah Eaton, made by the Visionary Boscombe Group over lockdown.
