The Holy Well Suite
DALLAS SIMPSON
IHab111

Natural freshwater springs have been venerated in the distant past, and still are in
present times.

This work consists of a delicate improvisation on the shore in the vicinity of
The Holy Well - a point at which fresh water emerges from the chalk cliffs onto the
beach next to a wooden groin, which is also featured in the improvisation. This is
a delicate and respectful improvisation using footsteps, found stones, a limpet shell,
various seaweeds and water.

The work consists of six movements that merge continuously:

1) Prelude: Walk-in
2) Invocation: Chalk Cliff and Stones
3) The Holy Well: Communion
4) Anointing Wood Metal and Stone
5) Chonchoidal Resonances
6) Epilogue: Pebblestroll (Walk-out)

Recorded 15th August 2015, 6:45am in a single take. No windshield, very light breeze,
slight ear wind noise included for atmosphere.

Technical: Microphones DPA4060 custom modified for in-ear placement, Recorder
Sound Devices 744T. Post record EQ, peak limiting and minor editing Reaper, SADiE6.
Recorded in binaural stereo, optimized for headphone only listening.
