Now included on the album INALIENABLE

During the Covid-19 pandemic, 2020-22, Afrit Nebula's co-founder Elaine Edwards composed a suite of keyboard/piano pieces, BULVERHYTHE VARIATIONS, accompanying a series of photos taken on her iPhone on early morning runs along the seafront and beach in Bulverhythe, East Sussex. The images (of patterns and structures in the natural and manmade environment) and the music seemed to fall into a narrative.

Meanwhile, Ken Edwards, inspired by the same environment, was writing in the imagined voice of a homeless person living near the beach: an enigmatic character who might be a philosopher or a former private detective.

The music and narration are presented in full in this album. (Images and text are now also published as a book by Silverhill Press.)
