Music For Lectures / Get lost - GIFT
Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion, with Wendy Houstoun
UK Online Premiere / GIFT 2020 Commission
Available during the festival
Wendy Houstoun fronts a rock band to deliver a short talk on lostness, at once funny and deeply moving. You are invited to listen while walking or running in a moment of escape from the house, colliding your travels with a virtual journey that goes nowhere. Perfect for these times.
Music For Lectures/Get lost - GIFT is written and spoken by Wendy Houstoun with music by Jonathan Burrows, Francesca Fargion and Matteo Fargion. It is the third of an ongoing series conceived by Burrows and Fargion, which invites someone to give a talk and accompanies them with a band.
Podcast mixed and mastered by Giacomo Fargion.
