There’s been a big exhibition of the photographs of Martin Parr at the Hepworth Wakefield this year and Cheryl went there to see which photos would inspire her next “Musical Sculptures” Workshops:
“I went to the Hepworth to see Martin’s photos
Thinking we’d croon on the rhubarb.
Inspired by the tarts and the man with the stare
And the candles that flickered so pinkly,
I thought that I’d cracked it so went on my way,
But turning the corner my thoughts went astray.
Now there’s only one photo the notes want to play:
It’s the one with the laughing trombonist!”
Listen to the song from about 50 seconds in. The rest of the track is this group’s composition inspired by the photograph and the song.
