I explained a bit about what Hiraeth was all about in the last Squirrel mail, but here’s a bit more.
I wrote ‘Human’ with my friend Andrew R Bird in his flat. It started with some beautiful glockenspiel loops Andy played (he’s an amazing percussionist). There was no blue in the sky, just impenetrable grey – the kind that makes your eyes go funny. When London’s like that, it’s easy to forget that the huge black void of space and all its stars is still there just beyond it. Humanstarts in that dark, claustrophobic place but by the end there’s a playful acceptance – we’re in a massive unknowable void and so we may as well dance. After all, we’re only human. Can we be any more?
As well as a sneak of Part II Living, I’ll be sharing more thoughts from the director Casual Psychotic next time. It would also be cool to hear your thoughts, so feel free to hit reply- It’s actually been really nice getting email
