This track composed over the christmas-new year period of 2011-2012 captures with field recordings and composed synthesizer parts the feel of Southend-On-Sea out of season. Field recordings were taken between Two Tree Island and the Southend Pier. There is a narrative which takes the listener from the nature reserve of Two Tree Island, to walking along the Southend Pier, to the very end on a windy day then taking the train back to the shore (for those who dont know, Southend pier has a railway to take people along the 1 and 1/4 mile) and coming out through the arcades and along the seafront back to the nature reserve.
I’ve included some pictures at the bottom of this page.
