A powerful combination of electronica, ambient, rock and jazz music.

100 Yards - In London, rich and poor areas are separated by very short distances. Song for Ursula is in honour of the great writer Ursula le Guin. Skardu is a place in Pakistan with great mountain scenery. Mr  President portrays the angst of government officials forced to work with Donald Trump. Unify  is a reflection that  our ancestors are part of who we are, even if we would rather they weren’t. The Crows on the Hill  tries to capture the sense of mystery and danger I got from books such as ‘The Weirdstone of Brisingamen’  and ‘The Owl Service’ when I was young. Stevie  honours the fabulous Stevie Wonder.

This is a gentle album. Moon on the Water, Sun on the Skin tries to capture the experience of being in Spain in early summer. Hazel and Fiver is a piece named after  two characters in 'Watership Down'. Altea Lullaby  aims to reflect the beauty of the town of Altea in the Costa Blanca region of Spain.  Two Waltzes  is a joined-up pair of piano-based jazz waltzes.  Pilgrim  is a reflective, improvised-then-edited piano piece. Our Man From Montserrat  was written in memory of an elder of the Anglican Church, who originally came from this Caribbean island.

Sunrise to Sunrise is a response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Marble in a Tin Can  refers to the way we have all been thrown around by forces outside our control. It features samples of Joni Mitchell and Lindsey Buckingham. Sunrise to Sunrise  reflects that many people who are ill or anxious are often awake at dawn. Colours of  Muddle  is about the chaos and disorganisation of the UK response to the virus. So Much is about how much we have all had to bear during the crisis. Five Walls  is a reflection on the experience  of lockdown:  four walls of our homes plus a fifth wall of isolation. Taxi in the Rain - sometimes we are all stuck out in the rain and need someone to pick us up and take us home. Quiet World - during lockdown the world was quieter than it has been for hundreds of years. Reaching for the Future  is a positive take on the crisis  - every action we take to fight the virus brings us closer to a future without it.

This is a gentle album of five parts featuring mostly acoustic sounds. Part 5 is inspired by Zihuatanejo, a place in Mexico where the lead characters meet at the end of The Shawshank Redemption.

The album  has six tracks: the complete piece, and the five individual parts.
