Presented as an audio installation in the Diep~Haven Festival Transmache D’Art Contemporain, July - August 2015. Released as a sound recording by Chocolate Monk, November 2015.

"A sound collage of audio material captured in Germany, Finland, Estonia, Madeira, Holland, France and England. Contained within its duration are rural and urban environments, spoken segments, sounds of transit and mysterious broadcasts from public address systems.

The work aims to bring the atmosphere of disparate and unrelated locations together, highlighting the differences in tone and pace, reminding us of a world of contrasts. These jarring experiences are injected with shades of movement between places, evoking the feeling of travel and its associations: discovery, hardship, excitement and unfamiliarity.

Ultimately, however, the piece conveys a personal yearning to escape tired and difficult surroundings for new worlds and inspiring climates. It is this which provides a hazy melancholy, and forms a somewhat desperate, unreachable notion of better things."
