TURNING POINT: Production stories (summer 2022) – singing workshop completes studio recording for our sound design…15.11.2022
On 3rd September, our singing workshop became pioneers; we’ve made our own little piece of history with two original interpretations of the unique, scarcely known, and deeply poignant “Barbados Slaves’ Work Song” (c 1780)
Our two versions of the song will feature at the start and end of TURNING POINT’s sound design.
These interpretations will also serve as stand-alone resources for our partners delivering learning, heritage, wellbeing and dementia support activities…
This element of the project has taken 4 years to realise, and so many thanks are due. Standouts are our amazing Caribbean folk song consultant Roger Gibbs; our singers (most of us have Bajan heritage); our passionate, conscientious and brilliant engineer Curtis; workshop leader & lead singer Simone Ibbett-Brown; and Sweet Patootee Arts’ very own Rebecca Goldstone.
We’ve worked hard and well throughout the whole project, but with these pioneering recordings we’ve done ourselves, our elders, and our ancestors proud. It’s such an amazing moment…
Love and thanks!
