CAMP Mountain Festival + 4th World Congress of Psychogeography +New Weird Harvest Huddersfield

September: the harvest month, the beginning of BOTH the metrological autumn and the metrological spring, depending on where YOU are

slip into the lake
for a last summer’s swim
pull a smile
from the teeth of the summer’s shine,
 storing heat beneath ground, in roots
for winter
(a time below while in cellars
sunrays turn to young wine)
do not turn,
turn away
from the the lakes who’ll
too soon cool
and summer
is suspended
a pool
of ghosts of pollen
of memory raging
all night psychadelic dance parties
and noise bands
whose sounds blend with sheer cliff-faces
the pounding surf and howling whisper
the wind who wont wait for spring
to begin again
but they the winds
improvise as freely as they can
saxaphone in hand and in swimsuit
by the dj stand

The hunter’s moon’s begun,
And through the wheaten stubble
Is heard the frequent gun. “

A partial list of performers is above, and the roster keeps growing.  I am doing a Core of the Coalmanset unlike any previous one, featuring an 8channel immersive surround-sound system with which I will play a new piece derived from recordings made and ideas generated while I was delivering a workshop at CAMP earlier this year.  Environmental sounds from the amazing Pyrenees that surround CAMP on all sides (alongside their trickling streams whose sounds wind through the village like stray hairs escaping from a cap and cascading neckward or left behind in god’s bathtup, leaving traces map-like in the linoleum)

really looking forward to it and it will be a blast.  it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been on the earth (the mountains really SPEAK) and the festival is packed with great surprises, curated by our friends who also run FUSE Art Space in Bradford!

“O sweet September, thy first breezes bring
The dry leaf’s rustle and the squirrel’s laughter,
The cool fresh air whence health and vigor spring
And promise of exceeding joy hereafter.”

George Arnold, September Days.


And Then:

Bell Lungs / Raeppen / Flight in Huddersfield


Doors 5pm, Starts 5 30pm
£6 on the door – or pay what you can
Pizza and great drinks available. Children welcome.

Bell Lungs:

Celestial dream pop with mesmerising vocals and glitchy electronics. This one-woman powerhouse from Scotland has been touring perpetually for the past few years across the UK, Europe and USA, appearing on the airwaves of BBC Radio 3, 4 and 6. Live sets flit from folk song to soundscape, with washes of mellotron, violin and organ guitar.
Bell Lungs’ last EP “Wolves Behind Us” (8” lathe cut) was released in February 2019, following on from “Phosphodendrophobia” (cassette tape, 2018) and “Mosul Dam” (lathe cut, 2017).


Nomad Raeppen evokes Sami influenced Shamanic drones using voice, percussion and electronics. Raeppen’s hypnotic soundscapes will make you feel at one with the spirit world.


Improvising vocal collective from Huddersfield, led by Jess Baker (aka Kaninchen). They are not entirely certain what will happen, but they are sure it will be fun. You might encounter made up stories, new languages, grooves, beats and hymns in their spontaneous sounds. This will be Flight’s first official performance.



“The morrow was a bright September morn;
The earth was beautiful as if new-born;
There was that nameless splendor everywhere,
That wild exhilaration in the air,
Which makes the passers in the city street
Congratulate each other as they meet.”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Tales of a Wayside Inn (1863-1874), Part I, The Student’s Tale, The Falcon of Sir Federigo, line 135.
