about

In May 2021 I gave a deep listening soundbath on the theme of connecting with nature - I'd been thinking of this for some time but concidentally it fitted well with the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week - which was simply "nature".

The soundbath featured the sounds and music here, but also short readings from writers on nature (and beyond), including J.A. Baker, Nan Shepherd, Rainer Maria Rilke, Lord Byron, Neil Ansell and Ben Myers. Additionally the "Valley is a moody mistress" section was replaced by a live gong meditation.

I was going to break the sections into individual tracks but the piece really makes more sense when listened to in its entirety. You can use it for meditation, to practice deep listening to or simply relax and/or fall asleep to.

"I found I was really going in" first featured on the Lines of Silence album Terra / Aqua as section F of Terra.

Track details:
0:00 - 05:40 This was the pattern of my days
05:40 - 06:23 There is pleasure in the pathless woods
06:24 - 10:32 How surely gravity’s law
10:33 - 11:44 I circle around the waterfall
11:45 - 12:55 The dawn
12:56 - 16:28 Soft, reflective mooing sounds
16:29 - 20:16 Take a walk at night
20:17 - 22:05 I believe I now understand in some small measure
22:06 - 25:21 The valley is a moody mistress
25:22 - 31:04 I found I was really going in
