The Hardy Tree - Sketches in D Minor

 Thanks to everyone who bought a cassette, it is now sold out. I was able to donate £422 to Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Boarders). I'll still be donating any money from digital downloads that come in the next couple of months. You can download from:  BANDCAMP

Originally recorded for John Jervis' WIAIWYA '7 at 77' project, where seven musicians were asked to each create 77 minutes of music in a single track. It gave Frances space to experiment with Moog based melodies, which she sequenced  with chimes and strings, over gentle changes in tempo and structure, creating inter-changing passages of music that ebb and flow over 77 mesmerizing  minutes.

It has been edited down into two parts for cassette and mastered by Antony Ryan.  Like the original CD all profits will go to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
