Safehouse takes a break in the summer. There is an open session at the start of September, and a gig later that month.
The main event we are involved in for September however is Fort Process – an all-day festival of sound and art set in Newhaven Fort. Safehousers involved include Gus Garside performing his new piece Sleepwalkers, with a nine-piece strings ensemble; Alistair Strachan, who is part of the organising team; Annie Kerr, performing her new composition Fourfleckflock; and more besides.
Check out the whole line-up – it includes some leading improvisors: John Butcher, Peter Brötzmann, Steve Noble, Chris Cutler, Geoff Leigh, along with acclaimed sound artists, talks, films and more!
