Ode To The N.H.S
Tuesday, 17th November, 6pm – 6.30pm

For the Radiophrenia commission: ‘Ode To The N.H.S.’ I have composed a meditation/homage to the National Health Service, using as a starting point, and end, I guess, the recordings of 10 weeks of ‘Clap for the N.H.S.’ that took place during lockdown. While there are many who thought the gesture futile, I saw it as moments of solidarity and community appreciation for an organisation that has long been under siege and underfunded.
