SEAGULLS, CROWS & PIGEONS

‘Tuesday, 11AM: No Sign of Life’ Unless you’re composing to a specific theme, deciding on a title for an instrumental piece isn’t always easy. The title has to reflect the music. I suppose it’s a bit like naming a kid after its been born. When there’s lyrics there is always a way to find a

007 & ME

James Gull, ‘Licence to Poo’ – all over my car on a daily basis I first went to St Margaret’s Bay, just along the coast from Dover, a few years ago when I was capturing the sounds of the sea for a sound art project. I go over there every so often because it’s not a

ONE PIECE OF FRUIT & AN ICEBERG
