Recorded for the Arts Active* ‘Braving The Stave’ series, this podcast primarily looks at how musical composers have represented the sea. I was recently interviewed by the lovely Dr Jonathan James for part of this episode and we had a warm and interesting conversation. We talked about the creative process, painting, music and the sea. We discussed the correlations between music and painting generally and in particular the similarities in creative approach between myself and the French composer Claude Debussy.
It’s now available on your preferred listening platform (Spotify, iTunes etc) search for “Braving the Stave” or listen direct on the Arts Active website. The episode’s title is ‘Music and the Sea’.
