Portishead songwriter scores woodland walk

Releases

Portishead

Portishead’s Adrian Utley has composed a fifteen minute “aural landscape” (ie soundtrack) to a walk amid the ancient forests of Croft Castle in Hertfordshire. He’s done it as part of the ‘Sonic Journey’ project, as is commissioned by sounduk and the National Trust.

His original score – and those by Shackleton & Vengeance Tenfold, Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory and Micachu, who have participated in past examples of the scheme – is available to download for free via www.sonicjourneys.co.uk, as is a hand-drawn-by-Utley map of the Croft Castle woodland.

And now, a relevant video created by Portishead filmmaker John Minton.
