A lot of the songs come from poems included in The Hollow of the Hand and most of them were completely altered to fit the rhythm of the music, so the book is worth a reading. Also, the country where each song was written or got inspiration from is specified. Not much but a good start.

There's the two-sentence summary Polly gave to Andrew Marr when she was on his BBC show in 2016. And didn't she write something about the recording process that was given to visitors to Somerset House, or is that a false memory of mine? Does anyone have the text of that? Admittedly none of that gives the context of the individual songs, and we know more about the composition process than we did then.

In fact, I'd missed that, so thank you! The resonances of recording in Somerset House are so very apt and I hadn't thought of it that way. It's yet another example of the strange synchronicities that move through PJ's work.

Thank you for posting this.

Does anyone know what that live (with audience) interview/conversation that was played in the recording was for?
I knew about the live conversations with Paul Muldoon, but haven't heard of the one played here.

Thank you for posting this. I think it comes from the conversation PJH and Don Paterson had at Kings Place in London as part of the Poetry & Lyrics festival last year. This chunk of the conversation appeared in a Radio 4 poetry show, 'Blast', a few months later, and we talked about it here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2591.

Hopefully she's referring to putting The Forest into a publishable form rather than deliberately stepping aside from music-making as such! I do fear there's nowhere much to go after Hope 6 - once you've redefined what being a global citizen means, what's next? But I'm trusting the muses to come up with the goods at some point.

might be "about how the governments of self-proclaimed civilized countries treat their own citizens"

Oh, I would love to think you're right! Yes, she did talk vaguely about a 'trilogy' in one of the LES interviews ('I think it could be part of a trilogy' or words like that). I had half-convinced myself that if that meant anything, it was that White Chalk was the first part. Three records redefining three different, widening levels of identity - coming from Dorset, being English, and being a global citizen. But White Chalk doesn't really sit comfortably with the other two; it would make far more sense if there was another to come, based on the same sort of methodology. And, in fact, when Polly says she 'thinks' something is the case, it usually means she's absolutely decided it is. Thank you for the link, in any case. Fingers crossed (for four years or however long it takes).

Theramin, something which sounds like anything between a guitar and an autoharp, and someone dropping pans. I can't wait! : )

Actually, what seems to be a theramin could be a saw ...
