ROOM40 : 15

I often think about Fitzcaraldo. It’s a film about obsession and struggle, and lets face it, insanity. The reason I think about it most though is because of Fitzgerald’s dogged determination to realise something born of pure desire. When Room40 started in 2000, I’ll admit I shared much of the vigour for the unthinkable that Fitzgerald did. Incrementally over the past 15 years Room40, with wonderful efforts from amazing artists, compatriots and collaborators, has grown from a single voice calling from the deep south, into a chorus of voices echoing across the globe. To hear these voices, singing in a polyphonic unison, brings me great pride.

In 2015, Room40 is celebrating 15 years with a series of special editions, releases and events. We start this month in Europe with a series of dates featuring artists Lawrence English, Rafael Anton Irisarri, John Chantler and Heinz Riegler:
