We were joined again by Jonny Russell who has been working with us over a year in recording and editing our music and sound recordings. Before we started one of the group managed to repair a ukulele by whittling a tuning peg from a piece of found wood. We pitched up by the Paul Nash sculpture in the morning under the shade of the trees to record various songs and sounds. After our picnic lunch we went into the James Turrell skyspace to experiment with some more sounds, whilst there were no other people around. We also took turns listening with headphones to ambient woodland sounds amplified through a zoom recorder. It was a very rewarding day.
Now that lockdown is at last gradually lifting, we're looking back on the past year with a sense of achievement and a committment to a future together. Even when we couldn't meet, Roamers stayed in touch by way of our post card project (details here) -- we've posted most the them here. We shared paintings and drawings and photographs from Toby, Suzi, Jon and Not Just Any Girl. Keep an eye out for a new video soon with more details.

Roaming's official goal is "to carry on creative activities that benefit the community and in particular (without limitation) people who find themselves in some way disadvantaged, excluded or vulnerable."
