Creating this online exhibition has been inspiring, reflective, joyful, intense and hard work. There were many gems in the archives at the collection, from autograph manuscripts to quizzical graphic scores, to old recordings and photographs. I have produced / curated this online exhibition within two weeks including two fascinating, intensive research days at the University of Huddersfield where the archives are preserved carefully, cataloging and colour correcting dozens of photographs, and uploading, and designing the exhibition on an online software that I sometimes wanted to scream funeral dirges at. I hope you find it stimulating and informative. This is just the beginning of an “unfinished” story and I hope to be able to re-visit the archives to highlight more of what is hidden and waiting for us to discover.
