about

There are some things that catch your eye, make your heart flutter, or even turn your world upside down. Often coming from unexpected quarters, these ideas, images, scenes, landscapes, paintings, photographs or whatever they may be, they all do one thing. They resonate with you. Sometimes you have no idea why, they just do.

This album is about those things, and the things you do to try to capture more of them, to seek more resonance in your life.

Track Name: Art Is Hope
Storm coming in from the West
RT jogs in a hi-vis vest
Motorway's empty, we're making good time
My wellingtons soft and light
Grip the fast lane sure and tight
We don't feel the cold
As we run down the off-ramp

Huge flocks of seabirds
Sweep in from nowhere
Parting the cold mist
Of the warehouses' tall cliffs
I'm paddling on my knees
Through the harbour's chilly breeze
Invisibly buoyant

Vet girl has wires in my head
Geolocators are saying:
11% body heat
Art is hope, art is hope

Round the back of Harwell
Up on the old Downs
It's now become a tourist trap
Fake cafes and artificial ski slopes
130 metres high
Rocket gantry to the sky
Atom-shaped logos of the Space Agency

Vet girl has wires in my head
Geolocators are saying:
11% body heat
Art is hope, art is hope
Track Name: Spoor
Spoor and slots
Traces in the snow
Graphics unmistakeable
Designed by the flow

Everyday words
Path-stopping curves
Rythmn of the letterspace
Heartbeat of the blank page

Dance of white and black
Curlicue's elegant track

As I move through this land
I am buried under
A mountain of words

Breathing in the wind's message
Searching for your marks
Stumbling on the unexpected
Signposts of your heart
Stumbling and searching for your mark
Track Name: Cubic Vapour
Late spurge smiling skywards
Helioscopic euphoria
Green petalled and plain
But all the more beautiful for it

In this autumn woodland
Dusky and musky
Humus-turning
Clods breathe
Slippery underfoot
Cubic vapour
Rises

Amber leaf falls against
Cold blue sky
Close my eyes
Face the sun

Fusion fires
Shimmer and float
Red orange glow
Deceptive heat
Track Name: Meles meles
Say hi to Sketchup Susie
Her eyes follow you twice around the room
Looks a lot like a certain ED
Knee to one, knee to one, knee to one side

Puncture my balloon
'Cause I've passed the Turing test
Cut the mustard, dodged the speed trap
Bent my circuits -- for once in my life ...

Just the Meles meles
Hanging around, long-toed and green-haired
Basking in the glow of the docu-soaps
Dozing, dozing, dozing in the halogen

Puncture my balloon
'Cause I've passed the Turing test
Cut the mustard, dodged the speed trap
Bent my circuits -- for once in my life ...

Past the oil sands
Sixteenth century
Poet's corner
Life is an endless loop

Puncture my balloon
'Cause I've passed the Turing test
Played on my bassoons
Ate some macaroons
Track Name: Poem
From this leafy day-lit place
We steal a glinting
From the outside
Edges of our being

Familiar happenstance
Curiously alien
Nourishingly novel
Quintessentially flat

Ted or Mary-like?
Jeffersian?
Or Clare-ic?
Galleymoreish

Words do not tame you
Embellish or defame you
Merely a wobbly bridge
From our human-ness
To the other side
Track Name: f.32
Edge of vision
Field of view
Focus of anticipation

Deep image
f.32
Scenic representation

World collapsed into a single frame

Stark pale outline
Lone tree
Empty crag
Snow against sky
Expansive feeling

Are you there?
Where are you there?
Where are you there?
You are there
There you are
Track Name: Encapsulate
The knee-gel shears flawlessly
The eagle's talons gripping fiercely
Fine fast running nothing but a clump of wool
Space capsule looks on

Words in a phrase
Reading your expression
Nothing more to say nothing more to hear
The fundamental inadequacy
Of human expression

Man slips in a Tokyo subway
Knitter drops a Faroe pearl
Bird flies into a window and out the other side
Million to one
Track Name: Reso
You're a good one
Catch my eye
O. O. I.
Why?

Resonate with me
Resonate with me

A perfect shaped tree
An orchid like a bee
A slatey slope of scree
A silhouette of a parakeet

A dangling of ash keys
A fragrant waft of meadowsweet
A tumbling of fumitory
Effervescent whortleberry

Hello
I'm curious about you
Will you be my friend?
Track Name: Found
Unexpected glimpse
Decaying corrugation
Green painted steel sheet
Sleeping in the undergrowth

Flaking paint undertones
Layered crackalure
Speaks to me deep in my bones
In a language I can't understand

But I know its meaning

A link to what lies beyond
Beyond touch
Beyond observation
Show me an unshowable thing

A mere blink of a thousand years
Reclaimed to rust
Crumble to ore
Nature to nurture to nature
Track Name: Daub
Daub
Daub

Door in time
Flagrant space
Achingly hollow

Familiar face
Favourite place
Meadow green and poppy red
Vernal fragrance
Inside your head

The brush leaves its mark
On the canvas
And your soul
Track Name: Sapir-Whorf
Aquanauts and aeronauts
Funnel woven, free diving
Squale swagtail depths and heights
Stratosphere to bathysphere

Wasser-tied coelocanth
Swallow's breath in fragmented paradise

Grey wagtail, rock proud
Toes splattered by burblewater
Twingling dark eyes watching
Surfacing ciclids, mirrorless

Lost for words
Don't need words
To feel this for myself
Track Name: Elenamh House
Apaloosas' eager jumps
Gun smoke swirls, cutlasses raised
We stand on tip toes
I can't take my eyes
Off of your polka pink socks
Shoeless in God's mining ed(it)

I first saw you at Elenamh House
Stood too close, but there were sparks
I knew then how it was going to be, you and me
Bottle in your hand plastic not glass

"I've just given a police station"
You said they were teeth messages
You're looking at my looking
Just us in the vestibule
Your hair so short, professional smile
I don't want you to leave (yet)

I first saw you at Elenamh House
Stood too close, but there were sparks
I knew then how it was going to be, you and me
Bottle in your hand plastic not glass
