Wave Shift is an immersive soundscape composition. Source materials for the work include a selection of field recordings captured during an artist residency with UZ Arts at Sura Medura in Sri Lanka, and vocal sound recordings. Both the main thread of sound that underpins the work, composed with a series of hydrophone recordings, and the form, which unfolds as a series of wave-like emergences, draw on myriad notions of water as a bridge between real and fictional landscapes. Wave Shift was originally composed for a collaborative installation with artist/printmaker Natasha Russell, and then subsequently recomposed as this shorter standalone work. Here’s the track on my BandCamp page.

Wave Shift Released in 2019
I’m delighted to say that Wave Shift was first up in August 2019 in the new season South Asia PhoNographic Mornings as part of the soundscape project Each Morning of the World produced by Stéphane Marin in France on BandCamp. All donations from the project go to the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE). Many thanks indeed to Stéphane for inviting me to contribute the track, record the voice intro and outro for the season’s radio broadcasts each week, and the album artwork.
