In 2017 I revealed that I was writing “The Haunting of Arkaig” which was to be an opera about a spooky wailing banshee that inhabited a Scottish loch.
The tracks were set out and recorded and I just needed to bring in the narrator (was really holding out for Neil Oliver but he was always too busy)
So what happened? Well I just got to a point where I decided I couldn’t complete it, but I just decided it was never going to be good enough. I’m very critical of myself and felt like I couldn’t dedicate enough time, finances and effort to maintaining the sound it required so I shelved it. Maybe I will go back, maybe I won’t.
The artwork was pretty cool so here it is:
