I say “rediscovering” because I realised, on reflection, that vocal expression has, over the years, often been important for me.

Between the ages of 11 and 14 I used to spend hours of the school holidays recording, with my little sister, satirical radio “programmes” which our mother was later obliged to listen to with appropriate amusement.

Later, at university, a group of us recorded a few satirical videos and collaborated on writing potential scripts for TV and radio.
