Have a care

By Nicholas Hooper

The piano moves with such delicacy and certainty.
‘Don’t change it, don’t change it,’
The voice in my head says.

But by saying I will go back
Back to film and music for it
I am changing everything.



About Dawnings:
“Every morning at around 5am I get up and go down to my studio. After a short meditation I write down whatever is in my head, giving myself fifteen minutes to do so. Then moving over to the piano, I improvise and record a piece of music inspired by whatever words I just wrote. It is a great way of keeping both my writing and my composing going and I call these small creations Dawnings. They are mostly unedited, like sketches, so that they keep that fresh feeling of an early morning discovery.”
