Preview: Everything I Have Is Yours

Join us on Wednesday 3 July 2019, 6 – 8pm for the launch of Everything I Have Is Yours .

Everything I Have Is Yours is a mesmerising new artists’ film 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 from Greater Manchester, many of whom are the ‘original teenagers’ now in their 70s and 80s, the film focuses on individuals from the group as they engage with top ten hit recordings from the period. Working together, sampling fragments of music from the formative era of the ‘birth
of pop’, the artists and musicians make new music from timeless sounds, that have been digitally processed for the project to release out-of-copyright samples. As the group trigger sounds from the past, the camera continuously tracks through the assembled musicians, echoing the circular loops of the music. The resulting 30-minute artists’ film is presented as an ambitious art installation ‘ screened on a loop in Salford Museum and Art Gallery.
