It's been a long haul. The LaMP studio, François Evans's composition facility, moved to a new home: an abandoned nursery school in West France. There's been a lot of work to prepare the new electroacoustic composing, recording and mixing areas. Roof renovation, floor repair, and painting to change the rather bright pink and yellow to a more sedate white.

Studio equipment has been brought in. The next 'phase one' stage is acoustic treatment and wiring.

Phase Two, to begin in 2015, will establish a control /mixing room in the space neighbouring the live area.

Francois performed under the baton of the amazing Charles Hazlewood with musicians from Goldfrapp and Portishead at the Glastonbury Festival on 29/6/14. This was to celebrate the imminent 50th anniversary of the British sci-fi TV series Thunderbirds. The band performed well-known numbers by the memorable composer Barry Gray.

Francois can be seen at the right hand corner of the stage, with Barry Gray's Ondes Martenot.

Deeply saddened to have heard this morning of the passing away last night of film composer John Barry Prendergast, a man who had such a potent influence on my childhood and life decisions.

Thank you for your beautiful and haunting music John; you will be missed.

François.
