I have always had a very close bond with the natural world and these works make use of the wide range of weather we have been having recently especially around the River Soar in Leicestershire.. The intense sunshine has created mirrors in the river and Slow Flow explores the tiny winds that occur at water level as a fallen feather meanders in the reeds. Fast Flow is almost the opposite, water on water in the tremendous storms we have been having. The sound track is made both above and below the surface of the river. River is an ongoing a series of photographs, of which four are shown here.
The sound track, Early Birds, was began during the silent time when the birds could be heard in full glory. This was the basis for a minimalist improvisation on keyboard.
These pieces explore change minute changes that we have no control over such as localised microclimates but also the greater weather patterns which may be the results of global warming.
