STARLESS MYSTERY

‘Drama’ Most everything we see becomes theatre A wild sea the ocean’s one-night-only stage Up above, storm clouds dancing to the gale’s orchestration And on the shoreline it don’t need any seating to engage An audience of strangers who never bought a ticket This show, the dark clouds have put it on for free Eyes

THE SAD SONG SET YOU FREE

‘The Whole of The Moon’ Two pieces of music today. First my instrumental piece, ‘Summer Died on a Saturday’, then, after the words, a song called ‘Red Planet’. Both numbers were on my mind when writing these words. In-between each verse a few garden pics. Places I’ve been yet never seen And castles in the

DEVIL ON THE RUN

‘Covid-19 Art by Anasyasya Eliseeva via New Frame’ It’s not the sky that’s on fire It’s humanity’s destiny So stay locked in your prison cell And let what will be – what will be Don’t hide behind a miracle Hide behind an old locked door Say no to celebrations Besides, you’ve seen them all before

WHO’S THE VERMIN NOW?

The old man with a walking stick pointed it at the squirrels in the graveyard. He told the little kid walking with him that the squirrels were vermin. The kid said he liked them and wanted one as a pet. The old man answered, ‘No way’. Ten years later, the old man with the walking

CLASSICAL GUITAR ADAPTATION

When it comes to classical guitar I like to keep my hand in but often other things get in the way. Not this time though. I made a new classical guitar adaptation of my song ‘Pain’  from my ‘Dream Rescuer’ album. Press the play button to listen to the new adapted rendition. It’s only 1.51

THE LONGEST SHORT WALK

‘Station at Perpignan’ by Salvador Dali I recently discovered this lyric from back in 2013 – my first year at uni. It was from a song I can’t find the demo of. I remember it was a simple acoustic ballad. Anyhow, at least I’ve got the words. Day turns to twilight on the railway platform

THE SEAGULL & THE CROUTONS

I’m an idiot for not taking a video of the gull. I’ll tell you why. For the first day in ages it had stopped raining and was just warm enough for me to have my breakfast outside a café – Eggs Benedict for what it’s worth. Halfway through eating I spotted this gull stood at

NOTHING COMES FOR FREE

‘Etaples Military Cemetery, Northern France’ – 5 years ago Nothing comes for free in times of war You even have to pay for an unmarked grave Don’t know your name but I can’t ignore The price you paid for the life you gave CASTAWAY Respect Copyright © 2017 Zoolon Audio.  All rights reserved.  Unauthorised copying,

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
