It’s an illustrated lecture, with music, about the life and work of Welsh writer Arthur Machen.
The original piece lasted for about 70 minutes, was devised for two performers, a lecturer, and Arthur himself. The reworked version (‘A Robinson Crusoe of the Soul’) is cut to 45 minutes, and is just me playing both parts as well as triggering a variety of sound sources.
I’ve written a blog about Machen’s best known work ‘The Hill of Dreams’ here.
