Forgotten Fields

Forgotten Fields contemplates fleeting images of rural beauty in melody and verse. The natural world fills me with wonder—the song of the swallow as it dances in the air; the sigh of the wind as it sweeps through the grass! I am a musician and poet from the Western Cape of South Africa. I compose idylls in music and poetry. At the moment, I am working on a collection of traditional poems inspired by my rural surroundings, the development of which I document at https://forgottenfields.co/blog. My most recent experimental music release on a similar theme can be heard at https://music.forgottenfields.co. I have a protracted artist cycle—that is, there are long periods between releases—but I devote myself wholly to my task. Thank you for considering my work.

Artist Questions

This is the first of a series in which I shall explore my thoughts on art-related questions, everything from “What is your favourite artwork?” to “Should art be funded?” Where I have already established a view, my answers shall be brief, but where I am yet undecided, they shall be exploratory. Analytical by nature, I am going to enjoy this tremendously.

Who are you and what do you do?

I am a musician and poet from the Western Cape of South Africa. I compose idylls—reflections on fleeting images of rural beauty—in melody and verse, the latter often inspiring the former. My most recent musical release was a self-titled album in the experimental genre, and I am currently working on a collection of traditional poetry inspired by my rural surroundings.
