Still Light – A Love Theme For The Wilderness

IMG_0704

‘By the time the summer came
a thousand lines had been
etched upon our faces,’

Hiraeth is a Welsh word meaning “a homesickness for a place you cannot return to, or that never was”; emotional residue tied to place, how memory ties to that landscape of first impression.

‘and in the space between
May’s end and your leaving
all that sounded
was the howling of frogs.

‘A Love Theme For The Wilderness’ by Still Light is 35 minutes of real time downtempo improvisation edited into a cohesive whole, an immediate reaction from different contributors, sampled and arranged.

‘The hushed
steady violence of that river,
humming along
starless and black’
