New Piece: Havengore Point

Havengore point is the northern end of Havengore island on the river Havengore creek. It is surrounded by MOD firing ranges but at the weekend its host to pleasure boating, mostly sailing and the wildlife.

I have memories of sleeping on board and hearing the lanyards slap against the masts when the wind blew- at the end of the piece you can hear field recordings of this happening.

This piece is about evoking that memory; a guitar imitates the sound, followed by the real thing. This music is also very linear- its made entirely of the chord Em/D and its (few) variations from both guitar and electric piano- but the basis is always this chord- so its its pretty flat, which goes with the terrain of flat marshland and sea walls that this piece is about.
