Myself and my colleague David Morton started If Wet in 2013, as a monthly event in my village hall. It was started an an antidote to the standard blues and rock covers bands that frequent such rural areas. All we intended to do was invite artists we admire to come and talk about their work, without us having to go anywhere! Since then things have grown…
We have now have two successful seasons in our hall, completed a UK tour of village hall events, had events at Flatpack Festival, Supersonic Festival and the Southbank Centre – to name a few – and we have recently started a monthly radio show on Sound Art Radio.
We believe we offer something quite unique, with our emphasis on exploring not only the sounds people create but their processes and raison d’être. We look forward to seeing how this develops further.
