The Caretaker & Weirdcore
The Caretaker is Leyland James Kirby’s project exploring themes of memory and loss. Through a series of six albums released over three years between 2016-2o19 , The Caretaker devoted himself to sonically interpreting the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. The result is the final epic project to be released under this name, entitled Everywhere at the End of Time. Manipulating samples of ballroom 1920s and 1930s music to slowly turn joy and beauty into confusion and horror, this ambitious undertaking is an intricate and deeply moving unique artistic statement. Now it will be presented for the first time in a live show combining music and visual artist Weirdcore’s visualisations, drawing on The Caretaker’s iconic cover artwork, created by painter Ivan Seal.
