This started out as a version of Over The Hills and Far Away for the Landfill Project, but I dropped the vocal track and let the vistas open out into pure ambient revelry. As it stands it becomes a piece of sea-side ambience inspired by lazing around the beach of late on tranquil sunny days looking over to Black Combe & Barrow-in-Furness from Cleveleys. Without the voice I've brought the 5-string violin (C-string tuned up to D) to the fore with electric bass ostinato and various ambient drones & bleeps on the Kaossilator, and the piece becomes a hommage to minimalism with obvious debts to be acknowledged to the Penguin Cafe, the Soft Machine, Gong and the Third Ear Band.

I just enjoyed this while looking across the (misty) Bay from Heysham. Loved the birds!

Nice.
