I was joined in the studio by Jemima Levick who I invited in to be an ‘outside eye’ and give me some feedback on the direction of the piece. We did a run of the piece in it’s current state. Jemima said it was lovely but thought there were things missing from the piece – crucially me. We then went on to discuss what might be needed. I began to pull out and read bits of text that I had written when I’d been first dreaming about the piece back in November 2012 – they seemed to be just what was needed. Over the next few days the piece really started to take shape and become something that felt much more robust and solid and, thankfully, less episodic.
