On a little trip into Wells (smallest city in UK, so they say) I briskly popped into a charity shop and found this 3 box 9 disc collection, recorded by Victor C Lewis. It really is quite wonderful. Had to move very swiftly as someone else was looking at it from afar, so I sprinted across the shop and then parted with the cash. Not often these days that you could find something like this in a charity shop.
This collaboration came about after I made a visit to Douglas’s recording studio, Twister Valley Records in North Devon to spend the weekend immersed in music, writing and producing field recording’s whilst rambling the countryside and beaches of North Devon. The product of this weekend’s folly was ‘My Morning Ritual’, an electronica scene scape produced by Keith Seatman with words by Douglas E Powell which explores the beauty and ancient rural secrets of the surrounding North Devonshire countryside. I have since recorded another track with Doug and a 3rd might be in the pipeline. All these tunes should be on the next album due out sometime in 2015.
My Morning Ritual is available now on Bandcamp for the mighty price of 80p.
This is the second issue of The British Esperantist. It's what I do these days. If you want one, you should get one now, as we don't have many left, probably because it is a. extremely entertaining and b. really cheap.
