After going for complexity in Multiclock, these six pieces are a sound track for twilight walking at summer on a flat landscape, maybe a beach. Norwich. Dungeness. Paekakariki. Murawai. Deauville. Brighton.
Behind you now - relief that the full blaze of the day is gone, but also the feeling that maybe something is going to get you in the gathering dusk.
The cool uncanny, unease at the thought of better days, time slipping away like a tide into night.
Also notable for having some of my actual singing in them, well disguised.
Sometimes I have a few tracks that seem to belong together but I can't make the connection between them visible. Usually then it's something in the world that makes me go - ah - that's it. For these tracks it was a dusky walk on the late summer heathery dunes on the fabulous beach at Winterton in Norfolk. We were taking a friend's dog for a walk and it was blazingly fast - a whippet - doing big looping runs, a brown streak in the purples and greens of the vegetation.
Wanting to capture something of that movement I just started taking photos with my phone, moving the camera as I took them to get the blurs. Those images then tied the music to experience, emotions and atmosphere. From that point it was easy enough to finish them, using the images as a guide - does that sound fit?
