Kern is a musical response to printmaker Dianne Fogwell's Resonance exhibition of 2001, and in particular, to a print based on an image from the early fifteenth century Chantilly manuscript: a heart-shaped musical score of Baude Cordier's Belle bonne sage. I've used elements of the melody plus sounds from the printing process, along with a swarm of backyard bees. I'm playing a collection of 'early' - ish instruments here: chalumeau, bass viol, harp, recorder, soprano sax, Egyptian tabla, cittern and a suitably ancient computer.
