First Recordings (September 2005 - May 2007).Sep 23, 2007
In 2007, I collected all of the music I wrote for friends and myself during the previous two years and put them out. I made a fair few copies and handed them out all over the place. No idea who got one. I forgot to keep one for myself.

Not Enough Instruments (Transmissions for Duncan I) (for Duncan Geere)
I’m looking out... There’s a school of fish to the right, sand to the left, bubbles... No sharks, I’ve got a sore throat, it’s 18:10.
I thought I’d get in touch properly some day but there aren’t enough instruments right now. Any chance of crew keeps ending in nothing and I’m here, alone, trying my best with not enough instruments. I hope you’re OK.
There’s a school of fish to the left, sand to the right, bubbles, I’m turning round.
Everything’s a bit murky out there but I can make out a few things. Still, I wonder what’s’ happening outside.
Here I am, trapped in a submarine, while my favourite season passes on above. I hope you’re OK. I guess it could be worse. I’ve got a sore throat but I’m alive and I’ve got to be here for some reason.
There may not be enough instruments, but I have a few and there’s got to be a point to that. Either way, I hope you’re all right.
The school of fish has gone now, I guess I ought to go over the controls a bit more. I’ll try to get in touch properly some time.
Thanks for bearing with me. Over and out.
