Programme Notes

Nautlius was written as sort of call to arms (for myself!) and was one of the first tracks I wrote when i started to work in electronics alongside my acoustic or orchestral writing. This shift was my way to reclaim some power over my writing, making albums where I would be in complete control. Its a lovely full circle for this piece to now be rearranged back to an orchestral form. 
 
I came up with the rising line whilst stomping along a beach in Scotland and experimenting with placing my steps across different parts of the material to create the shift in feel you hear roughly two thirds in.
