In May 2018, the musician and composer Tim Parkinson began work as the Beckett Centre's second Creative Fellow. As an experimental composer Tim is very much aware of the tradition of music associated with Beckett’s works, captured most famously by the American composer Morton Feldman. Samples of Tim’s work, together with interviews and articles, can be accessed from his website.
His Fellowship follows the pattern established by our Inaugural Fellow, the award-winning writer Eimear McBride. Tim will produce regular reflections on his creative processes and evolving relationship with Beckett's work through the archive materials held at the University of Reading. You can read his ongoing reflections here.
