Is an instrumental album of fourteen pieces of ambient, New Age music. The total running time, is 72.53 minutes.
It is the 12th album which I have completed and has taken six months to complete and has had between 15-20 hours work per week spent on it. Since I generally throw away 50% of pieces on which I am working for one reason or another, it tends to add to the overall time taken. Also, since I work as a support worker for people having a learning difficulty, the 15-20 hours have to be fitted in whenever.
A warm 'thank you' has to given to NLC Ltd, Wayne , Kirsty, Sarah, Martina, Ethel, Terrence, Diane, Rosemary, Roy, Alison, and Sheila..
The first piece 'children in the fountain', parts 1 &2 was based on a photograph I took of a fountain of two children situated in the Valley Gardens, Harrogate, North Yorkshire. (The photograph is on this web page)
Having just bought a digital camera, I was thinking about images and the idea for the photograph I had had for several weeks before I actually bought the camera. Walking through the gardens two or three times a week gave me the opportunity to think about concepts and subject construction.
One night just about tea time, the sun was setting and the light just right. I managed to get to the fountain before the sun and set and got exact ally what I had hoped for.
I have a keen interest in Egyptian mythology and am worshipper of two goddesses, Isis and Sekhmet. Many of the titles are references to one or the other of the divine and indeed, most of the pieces are dedications.
