He’s working with Unfolding Theatre to create a new theatre show called Putting the Band Back Together, the development of which is being supported by Leeds Inspired. Across the UK there are thousands of people who have stopped playing. There are guitars propped up in bedrooms that haven’t been strummed in years.

Recon Festival is a series of sense indulging, mind-expanding and body-moving music and arts events across multiple venues in Leeds and Bradford. Recon gigs in Leeds take place from 15 - 18 October 2015 so we caught up with Richard Claxton to find out about about auditory comfort zones and naughty technology.The Recon blurb talks about artists who play naughtily with technology - give us an example of this naughtiness. A lot of the artists use technology in odd and unusual ways - Wanda Group does stuff with tape machines to produce complex soundscapes.

Written by Chris Madden/Outlaws Yacht Club  15/09/2015

A sneaky peak behind the scenes of Chinwag with Chris Madden.Autumn 2012; I’m wandering down New York Street, LS2 when I’m collared by Craig Christon, who’s fitting out his new bar/art space Outlaws Yacht Club.
