After a short hiatus Guy Andrews returns with "Twenty Seven Inches Of Mercury"
The composition was written during Storm Dennis in February 2020. Seeing how the storm was tearing through the trees that surround my home, I decided to record the sheer power of what was happening outside and use the dynamics of the recording to drive the textures of the overall composition. This approach to composition is something I am exploring: to be resourceful and look at what’s around me to channel inspiration, but also honour the source. I am trying to capture a sonic-fingerprint of time and replay it through textual composition.
According to wikipedia Storm Dennis recorded a low pressure level reading of 27 inches of mercury. The track consists of a eight minute field recording taken from that very day in February 2020.
