Description by cronica:

"Old Chapel Farm is an adventure in living which aims to bring people closer to the fundamentals of human existence: the creation of food and of shelter. It is a bridge reaching forwards into a newer, more sustainable way of being in a rapidly changing and highly populated world.

As a family we have been visiting this place every year since 2011. In 2017 I decided to produce a piece about Old Chapel Farm as part of my series which focuses on personal experience of a space.

On our trip in 2018 my daughter Bea and I collected objects we found around the site and gathered them together in a straw bale hut suspended over a stream in a wooded valley which the farm's owners made available for us to use. We recorded small performances with We also made field recordings around the site, including using a piano which had been exposed to the elements for some time. We also made field recordings around the site, including using a piano which had been exposed to the elements for some time.

Back in the studio in Brighton, I arranged the recorded sounds into a new work. I wanted to try and communicate some of the mystery and revelation I've experienced on my visits, and the connections I feel with the land and people I encounter when I visit the farm.

Dan Powell was born in Essex and moved to London to study photography at The Polytechnic of Central London. After college he briefly ran a gallery on the southbank, made installations in a variety of group and solo shows and was involved in the OMSK collective putting on arts events across the UK.

He moved to Brighton in 1999. He's a sound artist who uses field recordings, handmade and proprietary electronics and tuned percussion. The main focus of his work is exploring places which have a particular personal resonance. He has been active in electro-acoustic improvisation in London and Brighton, especially with Gus Garside in The Static Memories, and Chris Parfitt in Nil. Currently he performs as part of Muster with James O'Sullivan.
