Bound for Glory

Bound for Glory (postcard from Poland) (electroacoustic music, 2002)

My strongest memories of my time in Poland are of travelling, and of visiting churches. The opening of this piece, recorded standing outside the station in Biecz on a warm evening - the juxtaposition of a hymn broadcast from a distant church tower, an announcement and the arrival of a train - happened just as you will hear it. And this provided the seed for finding and fixing the other sounds in the piece.

"This train is bound for glory This train."
