"When I looked through the photos it felt like I'd missed the train - I'd been to the Sydney exhibition and had other interpretations in my head, so I didn't know how to choose one. Then I put up the page with all the photographs, and stared into the middle distance for a while. Some time later, I started playing, and a rather amazing song/soundscape emerged. It tries to express what I took to be the mood of the collection, incorporating the exhibition title, a line from a Bob Dylan song, and six of the photos in particular - but only briefly, and only maybe only in my head. All of this mixed in with something personal I've been thinking about lately. If I have to pick one image, 'Song of the Midday Sun' would be it. I mixed the song and sent it off to Stu, feeling a strange mix of anxious and relieved. The song is long but worth it, I hope. I'd imagine maybe taking a wander round the gallery listening to it."
