Written and recorded in Berlin.

Easy to hear multi-layered groove.

Experiments in time... piano dropped first, loosely on the click... later added variegated grooves of percussion and keys all unraveling and traveling at individual rates vis-a-vis the click... tied together with quiet dance beats.

I Like was first conceived 1980 in the Laban centre London as a work for Richard Haisma's wonderfully energetic choreography.

Dreams and Water was created initially in a Hoboken loft in 1984, as a kind of interpretation or riposte to the KISS FM Mega Mixes that won New York's airwaves every lunchtime that year.

Gibbous Moon Blue Sky and Sun is a 4th world nod towards Jon Hassell, and indeed Jon Keliohor of London Contemporary Dance School fame.

Canterbury Memory - I would cycle, a kind of pilgrimage as it were, from London, through Kent, to Petham just outside Canterbury, for sustenance and relief from the urban vibe.

The Old Straight Track, named after the Alfred Watkins book of the same name.

Updated and revitalised vigorous vintage sounds. Berlin 2017
