about

these waters, close to my home in east Yorkshire, have
been a source of many days pleasure over the years.

I have always had a fondness for small rivers and canals –
their banks to walk, their unique hold on local wildlife and
of course the varied and constantly fascinating, evolving
sounds that exist due to their presence.

review from 'The Wire' (December 2008 issue):

'two pieces comprising untreated field recordings of Yorkshire waterways, recorded with the composer's self built hydrophones. He insists that it's not the technical perfection of a location recording that he's after, but a sense of emotional interaction with the landscape. That's not to say that he's slapdash with his methods - both tracks have a fabulously evocative tactile quality that clearly demonstrates the composer's attention to, and delight in the most minute details of sound. The result of such open-hearted diligence is a brief, captivating mini-cd, beautifully packaged (Richard Skelton's work comes to mind), and which reminds us that listening is the most important part of composition' - Keith Moline
