A Hole in the Ground Preview: Nazeing

The first time I visited Nazeing Royal Observer Corp post, the hatch was completely covered with earth. However on a second visit access was possible. This post was closed in 1968 and yet, despite fire damage and the passage of time, it still contains the frames of a single bed and a bunk bed.

The springs of the bunk bed form the background to this piece. The main rhythm is a loop of an accidental sound I found on my recorder and the melodic sequence was from the rungs of the access ladder.
