Around 10 or so years ago, I bought myself a digital voice recorder with the aim of recording myself reading my poetry, to help me become a better writer etc. Also at the same time, I got into doing field recordings of various places I visited to embrace ambient music in a very different way.

Over time, I recorded probably hundreds of hours worth of material which then promptly got forgotten about.

Last month, I got a phone call from my father over some old writings, records and
A old digital voice recorder he had found in their attic of my stuff.

The two field recordings here with improvised piano over the top off them are just
Two of a possible series.

The first field recording according was recorded in my friend Russell’s car in Morecombe a few years back sat by the beach listening to the rain bounce
On his car roof.

The second is about 9 years ago, during a visit to Brighton to see my friend Phoenix
And watching him mediate by the beach while it was raining (I was under shelter
Of course – lol)

Great memories on both counts.

Hope you all enjoy
