Another simple melody with hardly any embellishments.

I have the philosophy when I compose that if a melody works even in a simple piano arrangement, with no dynamics or tempo variations, a simple rhythmic harmony accompaniment and no fancy ornaments, then it's a really good melody.

I am not under the illusion that all – or even most – of my compositions pass that test, but this is one of the ones that I think does.

Hakon Inverness, UK

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.
