When I was a child I thought that all things on Earth had souls or had some innate life to them, including the sea, sky, pebbles, birds, even my cat - the list goes on. Around 2010, I read a book about the Aboriginal beliefs of the Dreamtime and the underlying concept of The Speaking Land / Earth. This book spoke to me and was full of the most wonderful art depicting how the Earth and all things on it had a place, importance and inner soul.
I suppose you could call this Animism (from Latin animus, "soul life") and I still feel that non-human entities, including animals, plants, and often even inanimate objects or phenomena, possess a spiritual essence and have a musical voice.
Strange but true and it is why I feel strongly that we should look after this tiny rock in a huge cosmos, we call Earth.
The Speaking Earth was first released in 2011 as a twelve track cd but with hindsight and new mixing, the new format, of two shorter releases as Side 1 and Side 2, has enabled each track to have room to breathe and take on a new life.
I then created new artwork based on the original images and a nod towards the beauty that is Aboriginal art.
