Manchester composer records the Gamelan for new project

Tom Burford has made a trip up to Penrith to work with the sounds of the gamelan and integrate it into his composition method. With friends Seth and Hugh he will spend two days in BlueJam Space experimenting and recording and will also leave BlueJam with a professionally recorded bank of individual gamelan met allophone and gong samples. Tom has a great new album out with Kawuku Sound on Banana Hill – preview it on bandcamp.

BlueJam Arts Space Revamped!

For details of all the rooms available for creative activities and meetings, see our BlueJam Arts Space page.

You can also find out about our Open Space project, supported by Penrith Town Council, with details of free taster sessions and times when we are open for visitors to look around.

Busy Arts Trail!

We’re nearing the end of two weekends of music, poetry and art and we are shattered. We have had gamelan workshops, harpsichord demonstrations, a group poetry game, women and girls’ jazz sessions and fantastic responses to the new exhibition space upstairs and the work in it. looking forward to a rest!
