Summer Shorts 08: Manor Farm, Botley

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

A walk through Manor Farm this afternoon led me down to Manor Farm Pontoon on the Hamble river. With the sun breaking through after a cloudy afternoon, it was surprisingly quiet down by the water.

Sat on the pontoon, I put my headphones in, opened up Auxy once more and started to write again. Composing using the same app over the past week, I've started to really get to grips with the way it works, and developing a workflow that helps me get the most out of it. I'd love to see new sounds at some point, but equally, the limited choices available has made me be more decisive and get down to working on the musical ideas.
