The ocean spoke, the waves they sighed,
A grey cloud hid the tears he cried,

(Mmm mmm …)

The seagulls screaming in the air
For all the pain that man can’t bear.

(Mmm mmm …)

Sustained the silence spun its tale
Of sunken ships and shredded sails,
The sailors lost at seas so wild,
The sorrow of the orphaned child.

A sudden stillness spoke of storm,
The silent air so pale and warm;
“Before the morning sun,” it said
“Another sailor will be dead!”

(Mmm mmm …)
(Mmm mmm …)

From Norway, but living in Scotland, I am a poet, artist, designer, photographer, and long-time dabbler in music.

I play recorders, Native American flutes, and a few notes on the piano, as well as enjoying exploring the timbral possibilities of purely electronic music.

I love playing traditional music from Brittany, Norway and Ireland, as well as my own compositions.
