Dancing in the moonlight with her wigwam hair
Royal Festival Hall Ballroom
29 May - 6 July 1997

Apologies for the rubbish sound on Speed of Darkness. The microphone obviously wasn't connected properly and there is only a faint hiss on the right channel. If anyone out there is knowledgeable about Magix Audio Cleaning Lab and can guide me on how to remove the right channel, please get in touch. It ran as a continuous performance; the split into parts one and two is just happenstance where I had to change tapes.

"Dancing in the moonlight.." was an installation. This recording was made on 5th July. At the end, you will hear part of the free event going on there as I emerge from the installation into the foyer.
