Spring Manoeuvres
Spring Manoeuvres was largely created at the Wells Centre in the seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea. It is a forty minute montage of recordings and performances made entirely on location in Norfolk during March and April 1986. It contains a vivid record of community music-making in its widest sense. Several hundred people, from schoolchildren to the most senior of local citizens, from rock and folk bands to early music groups, brass bands to orchestras, along with songwriters, poets and writers all contributed to its material. The work was made possible by a collaboration with the unique skills and imagination of recording engineer Gareth Stuart and sound recordist Nicola Lipp. Much of the location material was recorded directly onto one of the early 'portable' digital recorders, the Sony PCM F1, and then transfered, for the purposes of montage, to 16 track tape.
