Oss Night

At 3.30pm today John Hall presents Oss Night, Short Rising.

Built around a field recording of the 2018 Stretton Oss Short Rising, and drawing on contemporary and archive recordings of its central song, the piece explores the affirmative nature of ritual and the liminal spaces it creates. Reference points include George Melly, Mott The Hoople and Mayday.

The additional music is by Nick Morland and Mike Willoughby. The Archive recordings come from the collection of Denis Copeland. The narrators are Andrew Deakin and John Hall.
