In Conversation: Music Journalist Paul Morley with Eileen Simpson and Ben White (Open Music Archive)

Wednesday 2 October 2019, 6 – 8pm
Salford Museum and Art Gallery

Join music journalist Paul Morley as he delves into the themes behind 'Everything I Have Is Yours', with the artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White (Open Music Archive), plus an audience Q&A.

'Everything I Have Is Yours' is an ambitious film and sound work by Eileen Simpson and Ben White (Open Music Archive) that looks back to the first decade of the UK pop charts (1952-62). Working with a group of older musicians – many of whom are the ‘original teenagers’ of the Greater Manchester music scene, now in their 70s and 80s – the film focuses on this diverse group as they re-engage with public-domain samples from the formative era of the ‘birth of pop’, and incorporate these timeless sounds into new musical creations.

Galleries open until 5.45pm for anyone who wants to watch 'Everything I Have Is Yours' before the in conversation event. Book Now

Date: Wednesday 2 October 2019, 6 – 8pm
Admission: Free, booking required via Eventbrite
Venue: Salford Museum and Art Gallery, Salford, Peel Park, The Crescent, Salford, M5 4WU
