Blue Touch Paper
London Sinfonietta

Half of Me, co-created by one Elspeth Brooke, Anna Jones and Seonaid Goody, is one of three in-progress collaborative pieces created during the Blue Touch Paper scheme.

The London Sinfonietta’s Blue Touch Paper nurtures and promotes the next generation of composers and inter-disciplinary collaborators by providing participants with the context and space to instigate and develop new multi-disciplinary work.

With such an interesting prospect, we got involved from the onset of what would be a year-long project. Capturing the fermentation of ideas into actual pieces was an enlightening process, and we were able to film some exciting instances of collaboration.

The process culminated in a preview event on the 16th of May 2012, where we filmed the works-in-progress of the chosen collaborators - it was a mix of puppetry, virtuosic performances and in some cases scintillating strangeness.
