High above Salford, in high res…

I shot this as part of a project with Toasted Productions earlier this year – it’s a view from the roof of the Heart apartment building at MediaCity UK in Salford. You can see the final work on the MediaCity UK website. as part of a series of 360° views showcasing the show apartment of this headline development.

Recently Garden Gnome Software released Pano2VR 3.0b, featuring a multi-resolution Flash panorama display option. I thought this scene would benefit from a higher resolution version of the fantastic view across Manchester and Salford, so here’s a test version.

Detroit Bridge in Salford Quays

Detroit Bridge, a former railway bridge, was moved from its orginal location to between Huron & Erie Basins in the early 1990s.

Craft, design and wool…

This is the wonderful Manchester Craft and Design Centre, a creative jewel set in the centre of Manchester’s Northern Quarter. It’s one of my favourite places to look for unique gifts and goodies from a range of talented artists and craftspeople in the North West. The building’s a gem as well, formerly home to the Manchester Poultry and Fish Market.

Incidentally, the profusion of brightly-coloured woolen accoutrements along the balcony are part of an installation called Yarnbombing, by Salford-based collaborative project Art Yarn.

English Electric, live at Terrorist #7

The good folk at Sounds from the Other City asked the team from Terrorist to curate one of the venues at this year’s festival. An all-day venue (the Black Lion in Salford)  played host to a quality line up of modern electronics from a diverse and talented range of artists including Legowelt, Troubleshooter and Mark Jones.

This, however, is the mighty English Electric, pushing buttons and playing the floor. Three quarters of an hour of acid, pads, rhythm and bass which absolutely rocked the place. Hopefully I’ll be able to update this page to link to a recording of the live set soon.

Rehearsing and soundchecking at the Black Lion in Salford. It’s the morning of Sounds from the Other City and everything’s getting shifted, sorted and tested before the doors open for Terrorist’s all day slot. English Electric, Inserted and Trouble Shooter are all in view.
