Songwriting in Timor
My current evening task is to edit footage from my Timor residency, in order to present some of the ‘themes’ and projects that emerged while I was there. It’s wonderful to watch all this footage with the bit of distance I have now – I’ve been back 2 months this week. I feel like I am only just starting to digest my experiences, and to put them into succinct story form so that when people ask me, “So, how was Timor?” I have coherent things to say!
This video is from Baucau, and shows the initial songwriting workshop I did with the women’s centre there.
And this video from Lospalos shows some of our instrument-making activities. I love the energy and activity that this footage shows.
