Michael & I started performing together after I had set music to the sequence of poems ‘Light Motives’ from his book ‘Wordsounds & Sightlines’. He invited me to perform it in John Keats House at an event hosted by John Hegley [July 2012]. I also performed my rendition of Blakes’s song of experience ‘The Fly’. That evening was the beginning of our full-time collaboration as a duo, performing Blake’s songs and our own songs and Poems in the Uk and abroad; Frankfurt Literary Festival, Beyond Baroque (Los Angeles), International Contemporary Art Fair (Paris), Serpentine Gallery (London), The British Library, V&E, The Tate Britain, Manchester University, Hay-on -Wey Festival, and many more.
