    TRS058 is a lovely 20+ minute drenching from Northumbrian soundscaper Ben Eyes, entitled “FLOOD”. In Ben’s own words…
    “FL00D was initially inspired by the Winter floods that took place in England in 2014. The idea that we have permanently changed our weather system through our own doing is incredibly thought provoking and cannot be ignored. The floods and storms were some of the worst on record and seeing places I know and hold dear destroyed by the weather made me feel both extremely upset and helpless.
    The work of James Lovelock was also a large inspiration behind this piece and his Gaia theory (the idea that the Earth is one whole complex living organism) is unfortunately now being proven correct. Through the pollution of our own delicate eco-system we have caused untold damage for many generations to come, possibly forever.
    The piece starts with some very intimate field recordings made on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in Northumbria. The listener is then taken on a journey, through the dark heart of our little Island, to discover the coming storm that will come and wash us all away…”
