Taintless Tide

Thankyou Mike Guest for this video ! Thanks to Louise Bichan and Alan McMaster for their footage and to Elph for the extra cool Titles. 

The title comes from the poem “The Tide River ” by Charles Kingsley.

I wrote this piece for the Distil Showcase 2014

To help write it, I followed the shape of a river starting high up in the mountains, settling into a stream, rushing into rapids, slowing into a meander and finally meeting the ocean’s lapping tide. I sketched the river (below) to help me visualise and mould the music around this idea.
