Marshland: The Mix.

Marshland: The Mix.

About the show

Playing tracks by

Keep Sheila On Acid, Concretism, Monolake, Max Richter , Medroxy Progesterone Acetate and more.

To celebrate the launch of my book Marshland: Dreams & Nightmares on the Edge of London (see http://www.influxpress.com/marshland), I've created a special mix.

In the book I write about hallucinatory experiences I've had listening to music while walking through the Lea Marshes. The music blends with the sound of wind, hooting horns, dog barks and disembodied human voices, creating a unique audio mix, never to be repeated. At times it’s hard to tell those sounds that are in the music from those transmitted by the city. The distinction becomes meaningless. The music mutates the landscape and the landscape mutates the music.

I call these experiences soundchronicities. They create a space where mind, music and environment intersect. It’s a magical world, liberated from the rhythms of everyday reality, and utterly transient. It exists for a moment in time, somewhere in between you and the artist, mediated by the landscape.

This is my marsh music...

Really nice deep stuff, I felt like i was trudging across the tundra with heavy mud stuck to my boots with the winter sun shining in my eyes. I've often wondered if I've seen you over there somewhere..

If you saw someone muttering to himself, with a cocker spaniel trailing behind, that was me.
