about

‘I’ve used soundscapes a lot in my work and this time I wanted to try recording a musical reaction to a soundscape in the actual place. The last piece on the record Underground was performed in Canary Wharf station, underground, beneath The City and all the decisions being made in the sky. I performed it along with the soundscape - each take is different as I reacted to the people going past, the ever changing soundscape and the continuous beeping of the ticket barrier. The soundscape is as important as the piano.

Josh Green helped me greatly with achieving this idea - he researched and built a Jecklin Disk for this recording. A Jecklin Disk is a sound-absorbing disk placed between two microphones to create an acoustic ‘shadow’ from one microphone to the other, almost like your head between your ears.
