This is one of the film clips which was shot on Thursday, 15 November in St. Marys Church in Penzance, Cornwall.

Ges Wallace and Jamie Mills did the filming, Nigel Wicken played the organ, a piece by Arvo Paert “Spiegel im  Spiegel” (mirror in the mirror).

The image and the music convey a feeling, almost describe an internal space  or a place I so often yearn for, which I can find when my hands are occupied with one stitch at the time.

The music, in its quiet momentum helps to calm the ‘monkey mind”, when it starts racing I go back to listing. This exploration is just the beginning.

“I could compare my music to white light which contains all colours. Only a prism can divide the colours and make them appear; this prism could be the spirit of the listener.”
