Opened the case this morning and was struck by the beauty of a violin, the music I will perform tonight (Michael Hersch) and record tomorrow (Boulanger, Satie, Delius, Ives, Janacek, Elgar) and the sound. Here it is, exploring Sadie Harrison’s ‘Early Responses to the Thames’. I just try not to get in the way.

Gallery 2 is the second set of pieces which Sadie Harrison has written responding to my paintings. This movement responds to a set of paintings that I made shortly after moving close to the river in East Londonk when I was young.
