The ambient sounds of a stone beach pebbles on a stone beach, with the waves gently lapping on a crisp autumn day. That’s the scene from this short clip from Hayling Island, taken during a day of recording The Hayling Island Sessions with my band Listing Ships. Samples from the beach made it into the intro from this song, but here our producer Tim Waterfield has taken the sample from the beach and turned it into a brief but rather lovely BBC Radiophonic Workshop-style ambient study.
