about

Belle Greve 2am is the third in a series of tracks inspired by my home island of Guernsey. The music is influenced by late night walks, the sea and early morning views of misty bays with hazy sunrises.

Synthesised drones imitate late night vehicles sweeping round Belle Greve bay. Ambient washes, strings and electric piano are set over a watery location recording made at 2am on Belle Greve's Longstore slipway just before a thunderstorm hit the island.

Companion tracks to this work so far are the completely electronic Bordeaux 7am which was released summer 2018 and St Peter Port 1am. Like the new Belle Greve track, the St Peter Port inspired piece makes use of a location recording, but unlike my usual studio only projects is scored for 9 string players and piano. It has been performed live at St James concert hall in Guernsey, a recording of that piece will be coming later in 2019.
