ROB ST. JOHN

Isles of the West is a beautful short film, a fleeting document of tapering ties between nature and culture, the character of the filmstock lending a flickering, failing and warm glow to the piece.  

I wanted to reflect this through a folk guitar instrumental which nods and doffs its cap to the usual sources of Scottish inspiration, underpinned by the uncertain, somnambulant creaks and drones the film inspires.
