Breathing the City is an instrumental reworking of one of my first songs. The tune and chord progression have haunted me for many years so it has been revisited several times. This version is focussing on atmosphere, and was a conscious attempt to start embracing and experimenting with a wider pallet of sounds and textures – elements I had previously used in my theatre work but tended to avoid in songs and personal music.
The mandolin was an important link for me to the first 1979 recording – Swan plane – which can be found here.
