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 previously documented on my blog and now here. My most recent experimental music release on a similar theme can be heard here. 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.
