And Still We Rise!

Thursday 7 October 2021

Cinematic electronica act Dirty Freud have created their own audio visual response to the city of Preston.


Combining field recording, research into the Harris’ collections, film footage from Avenham Park and electronic composition to form 6 new songs focusing on Lancashire’s history and folklore.

The duo have created new stories based on the cotton industry, imagined mermaids in the River Ribble and J W Waterhouse’s Psyche entering Cupid’s Garden. Each piece is inspired by a line from the Museum’s iconic inscriptions: ‘To Literature, Arts and Science On Earth there is Nothing Great but Man In Man there is Nothing Great but Mind Reverence in Man that which is Supreme The Mental Riches you may here Acquire, Abide with you Always’

These will be performed accompanied by new video work on September 25th at 8pm at the Harris Museum.
