Patricia Erdmann sits in a living room that is a shrine to her dead son Lee. Pictures of the 37-year-old on holiday, at weddings and with his five children are everywhere. She has an engraved marble memorial to him by her bed. Patricia admits to crying herself to sleep some nights. Lee was drinking in The Wellington pub on Regent Road in Salford, Greater Manchester, in the early hours of Saturday 10 September 2011. He had been laughing and joking with a man at the bar and got up to go to the toilet. The same man shot him in the back when it was turned.

Track two, Constellations, is full of bold beats. This is more electro than its preceding track, sometimes the vocals are close, other times they are far off in the distance. The track really is a constellation, the only steady presence seems to be the rhythm, which battles on through the turns on top. Everything else is a varied and ever changing canopy of different moods.

The thing that strikes me the most about this project is how empowering it is to all involved. You couldn't imagine another event where a frustrated call-centre worker would have the chance to have dinner with the physicist who announced the discovery of the Higgs Boson.

Sally Beck

Clare's law will help but it has been criticised by Refuge, the domestic violence charity, who say it won't make more than half-a-percent difference to the numbers of people being killed, but if Clare's law saves just one woman a year I would consider it a success.
