“This journey has strong links to the area of East Yorkshire where I grew up, and this commission allows me to engage creatively with this environment for the first time. I have long admired Glenn Gould’s remarkable train journey-related The Idea of North as well as the obsessive train pieces by the Canadian Eldon Rathburn, who made the final realisation of Percy Grainger’s Train Music. This project with Blake gives me the chance to make my own train music at last.”  Gavin Bryars

For those that fancy creating and sharing their own Sonic Journey, Sound UK and Yorkshire Festival are inviting online submissions of music and video, to journeys the public find personally inspiring.
