One bright blue skied day in May, I went for an early morning walk in our local Dene. The multitudes of spring birds were in full throttle, a breeze blew through the ancient tree branches and a cascade of tiny yellow celandines draped over the bank down to the stream. They looked like Little Golden Suns – rays of sunshine amongst the green.
This track tries to portray that brief moment I felt when I saw them. A photograph doesn’t quite convey their delicate beauty and I’m not sure I managed in sound, as sometimes moments are so ethereal and fleeting that they can never be fully realised except in memories.
The original generative track ‘Celandines‘ was the basis for Little Golden Suns and was released in 2015 on Secret Places by Soundician, my first moniker, a project that involved my husband Kit Johnson.
