We Dare not Confront the Mystery that We Are

Another poem, this time whispered. This is about how many complex systems, of which we are for the most part unaware, are responsible for what we call our consciousness, which is rather limited in its bandwidth.

Mass Material

This new poem, Mass Material is about how mad we are, in various ways. I play bodhran, metal microscope case & Heat Synth. If you enjoy it let me know!

All Gone Up

Another poem set to music; quite a recent one this. I'm playing a bamboo flute & a synthesiser app called Heat Synth. The painting is by Caspar David Friedrich, one of my favourite landscape painters.

If you visit my Youtube channel via this post you will also find that I have recently posted an archive recording of my guest poet slot at Fire & Dust Poetry in Coventry in October 2016. It's 18 minutes long & features seven poems as well as  music on bagpipes, xaphoon & low whistle.

The Love Songs of Stones

This poem is an edited version of a previous piece, Time's Grandma which you can find if you dig deeply into this blog. I edited & remixed it as part of my project to post a piece on Youtube every week & added the music. Look at the photo & you may glimpse the other-than-human beauty of My Lady of the Gorge.
