Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

ATTIC MORNINGS EP- Special Edition on Vinyl

SIDE A: HAMPI- CATHY'S WALTZ- PLEASANT DAYS
SIDE B: EVENING IN THE EAST- ONE DAY

Release date: 21.10.2016

Almost every morning for the past several years, I have been starting my day by writing ‘Morning Pages’; a practice adopted from Julia Cameron’s ‘Artist’s Way’. Thoughts and impressions on past happenings, present occurrences and future perspectives are jotted down on a piece of paper in a fluid way, in an attempt to leave them behind and go into the day with a clear and open outlook. The assemblage of the sounds, songs and tunes on this record are inspired by the idea of creating a sonic image of this process:

The sound of handwriting accompanied by rain falling onto a skylight window on the West Coast of Ireland. A tune and a yodel that once emerged from a bamboo hut in Hampi/South India. A waltz, traffic, birds and a coffee maker. Songs, ragas, Kerry-Tibetian singing bowls that now reappear amidst rain and thunderstorm in the Johnsbach valley....
