about

INTERZONES

Growing up in the 90s I listened to a lot of mix tapes. My favourite tape was one that had been recorded over so many times it had become warped. Between songs were glimpses of whatever had been recorded before, esoteric phantoms that couldn’t be traced. I liked to put that tape on low at night before I went to sleep and lie in the darkness listening out for my favourite part, when ghostly horns and strings emerged from a heavy guitar drone and just before the tape clicked off the warm tones of a radio 3 late night DJ announced “that was Miles Davis and Gil-”.

Thus began my obsession with interzones: the moments before sleep, long walks through London, surfing through radio waves, transcendence, Tangier, leaving, arriving, moving through. The Nightwatchman Sings is a collection of such moments without beginnings or endings: songs emerge and give way to the next moment; seasick recollections of troubled dreams; a fevered mind grasping in the dark for connections.
