Family and Friends music collaboration will aid Samaritans
A Whitby musician has just completed a major collaboration project – a 40-track album.
Oli Knight, who performs as Owl, asked as many people as possible to send a one to two minute clip of them playing an instrument or using their voice via social media.
The music was then recorded between Saturday, April 4 to Wednesday, May 6.
The work is in memory of Oli’s friend Alex Winspear who died in 2011.
Oli said: “Alex had this idea when we were at college together, recording music with as many people as he could.
“He was an incredible musician and I always admired his lack of judgement and ability to work with anyone out of a pure love for music.
“He never got the chance to go ahead with his plan so I’m carrying on this vision.”
People can listen to the music at https://owlll7.bandcamp.com/album/family-friends.
The album is free but any donations from the project will go to the Samaritans.
