Bamboo – the first time I visited the South of France, staying on a farm down a long winding country lane, I was struck by the abundance of this plant. The continuous Mistral rippling through its leaves was mesmerising, both visually and aurally. It was a surprise to see so much of it, and the landscape reminded me of many Caribbean islands I had hitched around in my 20’s.
Its no surprise then, that bamboo has been chosen as the first generic theme for each of us to respond to in some way.
Having spent some time ‘on location’, although still a work in progress, our first piece is near completion. Having now read Sara’s words, I am in the process of my final reedit this morning, and Zu has presented a great concept for the soundtrack to complete the work.
