The Museum of Memory is a fascinating project. And what I found when I actually took part and recorded my own memory to include, was that through the process of doing so it actually did something to the way I considered my life – which was life changing in a way.
The more I spoke during the recording, I found myself playing music also and realised that the Museum of Memory was actually giving my memories, or if you like my long view of my own life, a completely new shape. The Museum of Memory really is a corker of an idea!
