“New Town Nocturnes is a collection of strange, fractured, impressionistic versions of memories from a time in my life both real and imagined, coming to me like almost inaudible radio waves from my past, the sound of people I loved walking carefully through my heart and sometimes staying there. 
“I am not sure if these are poems or songs with no singing—there is certainly no symmetry to these words—but there is a strange geography that takes in my beloved Edinburgh and reaches out from the New Town to Causewayside, the Union Canal and beyond the city to the Pentland Hills and to Bavelaw. These are the places I was, and these are the things I think I remember. 
“These words were brought to life and turned into the sculptures they are by my friend Michael Begg, who read them and then created these sonic landscapes, textures, rooms and streets for me to be in. 
“This album was inspired by the Edinburgh poet and artist Stanley Roger Green, for whom I wrote the piece ‘Cairn’ as an answer to his poem, the mighty ‘Bavelawin Winter’ from the book A Suburb of Belsen which has been a constant inspiration to me for the past 35 years.” 
—Chris Connelly
