I was visited my my cousin, who has Down’s Syndrome. He had learnt the piano many years ago, and I took him to play our piano. Although he had not played for years, he sat down, and improvised some beautiful melody lines. I grabbed manuscript paper and wrote down the melodies as he played them. I played them back to him adding harmony: he commented, “very relaxing...” and so I turned these melodies into this gentle piano piece; and then created this video, using mostly images from our free and wild “lawn” where we sat, with my cousin on that day. Credit and thanks to Neil Dawson, for creating the melodies. This piece is very special to me. (Most of the wild flower meadow, is our garden!)
