Summer Shorts 07: Mayflower Park, Southampton

This week, I set myself a challenge: find a location, compose a piece of music and create an accompanying short film.

Finishing work at 8.30 tonight meant that if I was going to catch the last of any light, it had to be close by, and Mayflower park seemed the obvious choice. Arriving to find the horizon dyed yellow and orange with the last of the dusk sun, and the industrial lights flickering on the docks, I made two friends who showed me where to climb the fence to get the best views.

As my new friends listened to Kanye West out a phone speaker — who am I to judge? after all, I mixed one of my songs on my iPhone speaker this week!  — I put my headphones in and started to play with melodies and sounds.
