The title track from the ‘night poetry’ collection. This one was composed on my dad’s old squeezebox at 3am and is a mixture of electronic & acoustic sounds.
night poetry 4.14
Composed using an old squeezebox, a bit battered & creaky, you can hear the air pushing in & out as I move it gently around. This track originated from ‘Helioglobe (Breath & Words)’ & has been floating about in various projects but never really settled. This is its fourth & final reincarnation.
“For those who do not sleep may discover within the stillness a certain kind of night poetry.”
Night poetry is the collected DIY electronic & sound experiments from scatterings & scribblings, discarded samples, homeless & lost sounds & unused vocal samples. Displaced & replaced. These tracks were assembled during the night & early hours & took on an identity of night poetry.
Composed & produced in a loft in Cornwall by Sky High Diamonds. All vocals by Sky High Diamonds except for the vocal sample in ‘Precious,’ which is by Rachel Gaskin – Whitrod.
