Scire is a tribute to Gerald Gardner, using archive recordings of Gerald and associated subjects. The piece was recorded in Christchurch, Dorset and the surrounding area, involving visits to Gerald’s Garden’s former residence in Christchurch at Highcliffe-on-Sea. The film and sound art are an exploration and re-evaluation of the Wica movement that Gerald pioneered with works such as Witchcraft today, a new beginning for an ancient craft.
Scire was created for the event Absolute Elsewhere which took place on Friday 10th October at Shelley Manor in Bournemouth, UK.

Observers of Wednesday morning’s total lunar eclipse might be able to catch sight of an extremely rare cosmic sight. And indeed, during a lunar eclipse, the sun and moon are exactly 180 degrees apart in the sky.
Gorsedd is a celebration of the procession of the Equinox’s as observed from Primrose Hill and Tower Hill, or Bryn Gwyn, in London. The cover features a photograph of Stonehenge taken at the summer solstice and provides a central context in the year for the two musical pieces. The winter Solstice is neither represented musically or pictorially but respected as a time of inward thought and contemplation.
