A mix for Haverfordwest

Over three days in an empty shop unit (Unit 23, Riverside Shopping Centre, SA51 2LJ) I invited visitors to browse a collection of old vinyl records, to select and listen to them and have their selections included in the final performance.

The majority of the records to choose from have a connection to Pembrokeshire or Haverfordwest in some way and include local musicians, choirs and bands, as well as records found in the charity shops of Pembrokeshire and a few to reference popular culture with links to individuals from the area.

I had planned to webcast the performance live, but after resolving some issues with wifi and 4G signals the new digital tech failed and my laptop simply recorded the first frame and last frame of video! it did record the sound however, so all was not lost…

Many thanks to everyone who visited and chatted over the duration of the show.  Thank you all for selecting records, bringing records and listening.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
Special thanks also to Pip and Guy at The Lab, Kate and Confluence for the opportunity to show off some of my records and turntables to the people of Haverfordwest and Pembrokeshire.

  1. Wish even more now that we could have made it to see your performance. I’ve enjoyed looking, reading and listening to The Found of Music 🙂 Mark was sorry not to get to chat with you today….he was too polite to stop the lady talking to him! We’re at the shop on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays….he’d be pleased to see you, if you fancy calling in.
