about

7 Nocturnes East - an early morning journey around Guernsey's north east Coast. Ambient music blended with environmental found sound recorded at each location.

I love walking around Guernsey late at night listening to music, mostly there is no-one around. You have the island to yourself. I also love the ambient sound of the environment blending with whatever I am listening to. Just as the daytime view out on the south coast cliffs or out over the Russel to Sark and Herm is never the same twice. Every night feels different too. The sky, stars and moon provide different amounts of light, from pitch black to moonlight bright enough to cast shadows.

The concept as it developed around St Peter Port 1am was this. Choose at night to record. Then hit the red recording button without too much thought. Work with the audio captured no matter what. With minimal curation and editing of the sound in post production. A true reflection of that moment in time.

"Flexagon’s soothing brand of organic electronica proves utterly beguiling and rather touching" - Bob Fischer, Electronic Sound electronicsound.co.uk
