There is an electric theme for this track. Use of the high-tension power towers on the moor and recordings of the electro-magnetic signals are mixed with skylarks and a lone raven. There is a background hum to a power-tower when you are close, and this track features a background drone that slowly drifts in pitch. This is an underlying feature that pervades the whole mood, the listening experience, and the way harmony and melody is perceived. The solo is purely electrical signals modulated by a barbed wire fence. There is also a sense of a forgotten circus, an empty plot of land, a barren moor, a forest in winter, a sky devoid of traffic because of the COVID pandemic, loss, loneliness.
