A long-player made in truly unique circumstances and the first of its kind. A concept album in its purest form, this cinematic trip was written and recorded during my daily commute on the train journey from London Victoria to East Grinstead and back over the course of a year.
Armed with a laptop, small keyboard and a good pair of headphones, I transformed the train into my recording studio, fusing soundtrack-esque electronica with traditional organic instruments, poetry and sound design.
My inspiration for the soundtrack was the changing landscape I was travelling through, from the industrial decay of south London to the stunning countryside of West Sussex. “Over one year I wrote twelve tracks, one for each stop on the line, evolving from harder industrial electronica, to blissful ambience as the album progressed and the journey neared its end.
