A multiple piano tracks drift and pull slowly out of time with each other. This piece is a meditation on the movement of water and the seemingly gentle destruction of this movement over time.
Created from processed recordings of a traditional squeezebox, Bellows 1 and 2 are from a series of pieces that seek to recontextualize traditional folk music. Originally conceived as an offshoot of the project Sounding Coastal Change (see links page), these pieces bear a relation to similar examinations at Hallsands Arts.
