The first fruit of a collaboration born from recordings that were made between summer 2012 and the following spring at my home. Myself and Peter Maynard had been developing our musical collaboration after I invited him to work with me on a sound installation ‘The Sonority of Objects’. We began to realise that we were creating music that seemed to show us a new place, an unseen view we had not taken in before and so we began to explore the landscape we found.
This collection of pieces - Dust - are careful edits taken from hours of improvised recordings. Using a minimum of equipment to ‘play’ our found sounds and balance them with piano and electronics, the sound is unmistakably ambient and lower case, but it also has a beautiful harmonious and pastoral quality that sets it perfectly within an English landscape.
