"Dawnlight" and "Halcyon" are two improvised percussive guitar pieces that explore minimal rhythmic patterns with felt mallets, attempting to capture slowly deteriorating, hazy youth memories. The pieces playfully skip around adding hints of dub music with a custom tape echo that is in polyrhythmic interplay with an open tuning Charvel 6-string guitar jacked to a Marshall amplifier. This is expanded with a Dr. Scientist Reverberator only adding to the love of dub.

"Ring" is in hindsight, although rather loosely, tied both to guitars and the theme of reminiscing. Recorded in forests of my childhood, they are short extracts from a collection of works examining resonation of massive steel guy-wires of mast radiators. Like guitar strings, each 200-350 metre wire has its own characteristic timbre; be it ultra-low drone, metallic creak or tonal howling. "Ring" is dedicated to Harry Bertoia, whose sound sculptures inspired the project. Special thanks to Jez Riley French for his magnificent JrF microphones.
