12 FULL MOONS

In collaboration with Barnaby Festival, I’ve just completed the first stage of ‘Our Future is Ancient’. Since the winter solstice in December 2019, during each full moon cycle, I’ve left Manchester and journeyed into the forest before dawn, staying until after first light.

PICCADILLY STATION 04.22AM April 2020 LISTEN TO DAWN AUDIO FROM PICCADILLY Manchester Piccadilly comes into view not long after the London Road has bent under the Mancunian Way, on the way in from Ardwick. This terminus station was built high off the ground, the trains arriving and leaving by tracks laid on viaducts of tainted, red brick. The surrounding area sets the standard for Mancs, being a place of compromised promise, of bold ambitions impaired by the nagging ghosts of […]
