12. In The Depths
The 9 minute epic. I am a fan of Dave Gilmour and I wanted to write something in his style. Unusually there is no real guitar solo at any point in the piece.
The middle section was originally written for an oil industry corporate presentation about diving, hence the title.
I have had a lot of fun recording this album and all the instruments on it. I’m not a drummer or a keyboardist or bass player but there is a certain satisfaction in trying to do it all yourself, albeit by slaving over a computer screen for hours at a time punching notes in on a keyboard.
I have tried to describe to you where these tracks come from and where my influences lie.
I have the deepest respect for the people that have influenced me and I am fully aware that I can never come close to the abilities of those people, but I can always aspire to them.
