PREMIERE: Simon Turner's Demo For Jarman's Blue
The Quietus , March 27th, 2020 15:57

The track has been made public to help support Prospect Cottage fundraiser

Musician Simon Fisher Turner was a long-time collaborator with Derek Jarman, working on the soundtracks to many of his films, acting in some of them, and working behind the scenes on aspects of the production.

Turner's involvement with Jarman's work came in the period during which the filmmaker was living and working at Prospect Cottage on Dungeness, the building currently subject to an Art Fund campaign to save it for the nation as an arts residency centre.

You can listen to Turner's demo for his soundtrack for Blue above, and read our Luke Turner (no relation) writing about why the campaign to save Prospect Cottage is an important one here. Find out more about the campaign and how you can help here.
