I am still in the process of writing a series of 12 songs inspired by the changing seasons in the landscape at Newmillerdam and Seckar Woods in Wakefield. As I walk in these areas, I gather thoughts, sounds and images on walks with my dog and I am developing these ideas into pieces for voice and a variety of other instruments.
I began documenting the process in my blog... and had hoped to create a recording of all 12 songs on completion of the project in 2019, although due to other commitments this time scale has slipped! If you wish to bolster my efforts to complete my challenge, there are opportunities to participate in the piece as it develops, through playing, walking, talks and performances, so for more information or to find out how to get involved, please feel free to contact me. You can hear a taste of some of my work in progress, here.
