On the closing day of our very special ‘outside of the box’ themed 19th edition this past October (2017) there was a fantastic afternoon performance by American artist Joe McPhee and British artist Graham Lambkin. This duo, which may seem unlikely on first approach, has been carved out of a close friendship to develop a unique creative language that has led to some beautifully strange and compelling music. Merging two very different backgrounds and artistic approaches, these two great artists create something very personal, wonderfully odd and immediate.
Following their improvised performance at Forth our Director crys cole had the pleasure of sitting down with Joe & Graham to discuss their collaboration and their distinct histories and philosophies.
This talk was captured on video by Robert Szkolnicki and we are thrilled to share it beyond our local audience now.
