Tell us something about your track The Key!
The piece was inspired by a visit some years ago to a French chateau in Normandy. The building and estate were elegant and charming and full of old world faded glamour. There were many parts to explore and a few outbuildings in the grounds and one of them had a key in the door. I turned it and ventured inside, to discover a room which looked as if it hadn’t been touched for fifty years. There was that sense that you can experience in some special places, of being very close to history and the people who had been there before – a different kind of magical, mysterious atmosphere that links you to the past and gives you a strong sense that everything is connected. This was the feeling I was trying to capture in the piece. It’s in three four time and in a minor key which gives the piece both a sense of place – it sounds very French – and it gives it an element of both mystery and nostalgia”
