5 harp pieces

    I wrote and improvised these pieces in a large bright room in France in the summer of 2017.
    They were recorded with a zoom recorder. Sounds of countryside delivery vehicles rumble in and out, the sharp sounds of pages turning and chairs shifting. The sounds are left unchanged apart from edits to track segues, and to the final track.
    This was part of a project to record ‘limitations’ where I was passed anonymous notes containing a certain limitation. Track 4 restricted me from writing with the letters a or o, and track 5 allowed me only the use of one finger. I bent the rules a bit, and I’ve doubled the one finger on the recording, so it is now two fingers. 1 and 3 are improvisations in that echoey sunny room.
    Released digitally for bandcamp day march 2021.
