The world became bizarrely quiet during Lockdown 1 and, as the sounds of nature asserted themselves in people’s minds, The Portland Sound wanted to create a piece of music with starkly contrasting sounds ie natural vs synthentic. Trying to get a good field recording of birdsong in a piece of local woodland proved surprisingly hard as it was difficult to find anywhere without any human sounds in the background. As it happened, the passing train in this piece ended up providing a nice sound for the rhythm to lock into. Listening to it now, you can hear the optimism they felt about the way things were going to pan out.
