Bethan Kellough - Lines of Flight

from Touch: Isolation by Various Artists



Death Valley in the height of summer

The breeze rushes gently over the expanse of Eureka valley. In this heat it is deserted.

A storm rolls through and as the temperature changes, sand particles from the dunes are suddenly airborne - the accompanying wind orchestrating their abrasive path.

As the day fades, insects fly through the air toward the light inside the tent, coming into abrupt contact with the membrane that forms my shelter.

I switch off the light, and silence the flies. I listen through the membrane to the outside, to the soft breeze in isolation.


from Touch: Isolation, released June 11, 2020
Lines of Flight is inspired by recordings made in Death Valley in June 2019. It was made at home in Los Angeles in April 2020, using the recordings from Eureka dunes, and various stringed instruments.

Mastered by Denis Blackham, 1st May 2020.
Photography and design by Jon Wozencroft.
