Me playing a triple headed didgeridoo, made by Josef Bull (lower left in image) at Bonniers Konsthall Stockholm as part of the Maria Bonnier Dahlin Foundation awards.
A collection of collaborations made between 2001 and 2013 with Jim Barrett, Adil Fadi (Funkservice International) and Erik Emanuelsson (Acid Folk, @Jaetten). The basis for each of these tracks is the didgeridoo, but the instrument is heavily sampled, remixed or processed in each. From sampling and looping, to performances in an acoustic chamber to processing using custom made digital tools, the didgeridoo is reconfigured in these tracks to bring new life to its amazing sounds.
A Place of Play
A mixed reality performance, ‘A Place of Play’ between the digital humanities research space HUMlab X at the just opened arts campus at Umeå University and in Second Life My short abstract from the program for the Arts Campus Open Day is:
James Barrett is a researcher and teacher in HUMlab working with digital narrative and the spatial. James’ presentation at the opening of HUMlab X will focus on the dimensions of digital space. As an avatar Jim will perform in the virtual world of Second Life while performing in the space of HUMlab X at the same time. The performance will consist of live music and a screen running Second Life.
Thanks to Beatrice for shooting the video and HUMlab for everything.

I Street Sufi
Am awakening to the streets of Stockholm, along with the birds flower branches. I shall play a lot this spring and summer. Plans to record a new CD. I have established a fine space new studio in an ancient house. All is well.
