Three tracks made from altered field recordings. Released on cassette and download by Flaming Pines, 30th January 2020.

"Something About Still Trying" is based around a mobile phone recording taken on a coach to London from Sheffield, which was waiting to start the journey in the terminal. There are two repetitive beeping noises happening in the coach, like a prosaic loop or a skipping record, which I augmented digitally to make the piece.

"A Tracing of a Single Tide" was recorded at Walton on the Naze, North Essex, when I spent the day collecting audio, photos and objects with Sally Child as part of her Groyne Gallery project. I used a stick and some rope I found on the beach to make a large stylus, amplified with contact mics, which I recorded dragging along the high-water mark on the beach. I also recorded some reed organ and the water lapping at the end of the pier. These sounds were put on tape then combined with some synth in a live take to create the recording.

"Windchange" is a recording taken inside the top of a 100 year old windmill in Harplinge, Sweden, during a rainstorm and a change in the wind direction. The windmill, which has been adapted into an artspace by Mikael and Julie Ericsson, still works to tell the wind direction as it mechanically tracks the wind, turning its large sails towards it. I enhanced the recording to try to approximate the feeling of being inside the strange, creaky dome as it turned.
