A five-part nautical adventure into the unknown
This collaborative project between pianist/composer Ben Gailer and producer/composer Ewan Collins was submitted as part of my BMus (Hons) portfolio in 2020. It was recorded at home in June/July 2020 during New Zealand's Level 4 lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. I recorded the piano at home and the final tracks were produced by Ewan, with contributions from vocalists Rachel Clarke, Gretel Donnelly, Caoimhe Lane, Helen Pahulu, Jessica Rogers, Eda Tang, and guitarist Jake Nicholas.
I have uploaded selected tracks from this project on Soundcloud. I have plans to revisit this project for a proper studio recording and EP release sometime in the future.
