"I want to live in a castle.." is constructed from materials recorded in a chaotic music classroom where I was music teacher for a time. In the classroom at this challenging school, playing percussion instruments became a way for many children to summon parts of the self left unnoticed in the academic classroom. Instruments were an engaging tool used by struggling selves to become robust and resilient. When I made "I want to live in a castle.." I was thinking about the performative aspects of growing up amongst the strictures and normalising boundaries of school.
The piece is an electroacoustic treatment of the children's creations.
