Overgrown in the Undergrowth [Second Language] 2011
I was invited to contribute a minute long song for this beautifully curated and packaged compilation by Second Language.
I find it hard to write very short songs (strange, as we used to write lots of them when I was in a grindcore band), as I now find it quite a challenge to condense an idea into such a short time. The idea I had in mind was rather topical as it was the time when all air traffic had been stopped because of the volcanic events at Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland. We had recently moved into our new house and were enjoying watching plants emerging in the garden. So, one morning I placed my recorder in amongst the cowslips to record the abundance of bees there and at the same time recorded the aircraft now being allowed to resume their usual flight paths above our heads.
