TRACK: POTTERS PARK
LOCATION: POTTERS FIELDS PARK
The piece is built around an ambient bed of simple guitar and synthesizer loops. The different parts flow in and out of time with each other like the thick currents of the Thames.
Buzzing synths interact disjointedly, in private whispers, seeking a resolution to their circling, before falling into each others arms. These silky, earthbound interweaving layers fade into the background as a folky acoustic guitar and vocal melody floats in, filling the open space with a spirited, human texture.
This heartfelt release subsides and disperses back into quietness, as the scattered ambience gradually starts to rebuild. A twinkling motif opens in the centre of the airy soundscape, guiding the wandering parts, slicing through the grey like birds flying through clouds. The slumber comes to a reviving end when the folk melody returns speeded up, swooping and gliding like Celtic fairies dancing merrily in the skies above a stormy island.
