This track is inspired by the amazing countryside of Wales or more specifically; a single photo by epic Welsh photographer Kevin Donovan. The photograph in question (named ‘Hidden Light’ or ‘Golau Cudd’ in Welsh) can be seen as the accompanying image with many more beautiful landscapes to be found on Mr. Donovan’s website:
The piece itself steers my ‘soundscape’ genre in a new direction which has previously seen simple, heavily electronic music created via the influence of a single image (you can hear Soundscape III if you look through my previous material). This soundscape features many orchestral instruments and is far more complex in tonality, structure and instrumentation with synthesised timbres only being employed in the coda.
I hope you enjoy listening to the piece while viewing the photograph upon which it was inspired!
Thanks for your time…
