As a child I was scared of the dark so night was never an attractive part of the ‘day’ for me. As I grew older this irrational fear dispelled and I was left with a fascination for the dark and I often found myself composing well into the early hours watching the moon move across the night sky. Nocturne draws from the night soundscape both literally (or as literal as I could recreate) and evocatively.
