Finally, inquiring about shooting Empire 35 at Macmillan Fest got me a press pass to that event, and my first chance to shoot in Rescue Rooms and Rock City Basement.
So, a brace of great gigs this summer, meeting some fantastic people, and the opportunity to get some shots that I'm really proud of can all be traced back to that rather sparsely attended gig back in June!
My best wishes to James, Jeff, Rich, and Sean in whatever they're off to do next. One thing I won't miss for the time being though - waiting for the rare moments when Sean's hair isn't in front of his face so that the camera's auto-focus stands any chance of locking on to him! :P

With all the photography, the music has been a little neglected lately. So, here's a new tune at last. It follows on from a track I posted about a year ago (Driving Through), hence the 'Part 2' title. The intention is to also produce a 'Part 3', weaving together ideas from both the previous parts, hopefully sooner than in a year's time!
It has got (even?) more of a film score feel than some of my tracks, as opposed to a stand-alone piece. That was just the way it turned out rather than a conscious decision. Due to the extended period over which it was written, it grew somewhat 'organically'.
