After a period writing electronica, I packed away my samplers and synthesisers and went to live by the sea in Cornwall and filled the room with acoustic instruments. Then I wrote and recorded over fifty songs which I am now starting to release.
This is my first EP in a musical series of six. It is called simply
Songs 1-4, subtitled Sybil of Delphi. The second EP will be called
Songs 5-9 and so it will continue. The pieces vary from four minute songs to longer soundscapes. Song 13 is a sixteen minute piece of collaged instrumentation and vocals with an improvisation on Fender Rhodes added on top.
The cds are a limited edition with just 100 copies available. They are hand made using beautiful recycled card and illustrated by illustrator Michaela Meadow. Each cd is accompanied by an illustrated story.
