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 lyric verses to be published in 2021; I document my progress 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.
The Adoration of Nature
Especially a reverence for the pastoral.
Images of Rural Beauty
Especially the fleeting and almost insignificant.
Idylls in Music and Poetry
Composed in experimental music and traditional verse.
- 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.
