Musician and Poet

Forgotten Fields contemplates fleeting images of rural beauty in melody and verse. The natural world fills me with wonder—the song of the swallow as it dances in the air; the sigh of the wind as it sweeps through the grass!

I am a musician and poet from the Western Cape of South Africa. I compose idylls¹ in music and poetry. At the moment, I am working on a collection of traditional poems inspired by my rural surroundings, the development of which I document here. My most recent experimental music release on a similar theme can be heard here.

I have a protracted artist cycle—that is, there are long periods between releases—but I devote myself wholly to my task. Thank you for considering my work.

My Work

Idylls in Music and Poetry

Composed in experimental music and traditional verse.

  1. An idyll is a short description in verse or prose of a picturesque scene or incident, especially in rustic life. I consider a work of any length created in the spirit of that definition appropriate for the category.
