"The image of Tealham Moor I found quite evocative and mysterious and a landscape quite foreign to that which I’m familiar with in Australia. I did a little research into the types of wildlife that live in the flood plains and manipulated some recordings of ducks, skylarks and dragonflies with synthetic elements to create a dreamscape of the beauty and foreboding atmosphere of the photo of a place that only exists for me in my imagination. The melodic material was composed by me playing my Roland JP-8000 and evoking the image of The Tealham Moor in my mind as I played the keyboard. At points in the composition the processed sounds and real world material collide to illustrate the intersection between real and imagined space created by my perception of the image."
