The Garwin Project, Nick Robinson, A Collection of Notes

Wednesday June 24th 7.30pm


An evening of "electro" music, featuring:

The Garwin Project's contemporary electronica draws inspiration from many sources, including the Berlin School of electronic composition and Sheffield's rich musical heritage. Performing 'Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Summer',  this specially-created Midsummer night's piece features new material alongside tracks from the two acclaimed albums 'HeadSpace' and 'Train Of Thought'.

Nick Robinson has for many years offered a range of soundscapes and other looping guitar pieces. Using just the guitar and a laptop, he takes you to distant planets. Nick is half of the "Lost Garden" duo, who have a CD "Cotyledon" out now.

A Collection of Notes: Classic synth/electro/ambient music created by Sheffield’s Jan Gilhooley using only Apple’s iPad and iPod Touch running a
variety of software synths. Originally “A Collection of Notes” was Jan’s name for some early electronic music experiments back in the late 1980s. When he discovered the possibilities of making electronic music using the Apple mobile devices in 2011 “A Collection of Notes” was renewed to provide a vehicle for the new music created. The ability to create music that both incorporates and reflects the physical environment is one of principle sources of inspiration.

Entry only £3!

Wednesday 6th May at 7.30 pm

Sally Rodgers, community heritage Archaeologist at Heeley city farm will be giving a talk about the project at Tinsley Manor.

Exploring Tinsley Manor is a three years Lottery Funded Project. It was initiated by Tinsley Primary School who had been researching the history of their school site and found maps showing that there was a Medieval Manor House under their school field.

There are significant archaeological remains in situ. We have learned a lot about the site however, the excavations took place during term time and involved the whole school as well as visitors and volunteers.

Because we were working with 15 different children on site every half hour progress was slow. There is more to be discovered. We would like to finish excavation on this site. With the new developments due to take place with the demolition of the current school and reuse of the site as a public amenity the only opportunity to study this is in detail will be post demolition pre re-use.
