The inspiration for On Satin Waters comes from a particular afternoon kayaking at Wilhelmina Bay on the Antarctic Peninsula. This day was especially dark and foggy, the water was like a giant black sheet of satin, so rich and reflective that the bright blue of the massive looming icebergs was mirrored in it. The silence was eerie, with just the odd gust of wind, slosh of water, or distant calving of ice cutting through the silence, difficult to isolate or locate its source. Recordings featured in this work are taken while kayaking in Antarctica.
I would like to extend a huge thank you to the Antarctic Heritage Trust for offering me this extraordinary opportunity to travel to Antarctica, and for their perseverance and support in getting our team back home during the challenges of COVID-19.
for Nathaniel Otley and Mark Menzies, with thanks to the Antarctic Heritage Trust
