Lily Jencks + Hannah Peel
Hannah Peel created her track by following the flow of Lily Jencks' drawing. (The Horizon: your steps are a metronome. 30 minutes, 23 July 2020.)
Your steps are a metronome
"In terms of the process, I suppose I would say that every drawing starts with a question, and is a journey itself. I had a very personal, and powerful experience walking over a bridge in London after a traumatic event. I’ve always walked as a kind of musical meditation. As I walked the bridge on that journey I was very conscious of my relationship with the horizon, particularly as it opened up on the bridge.
This drawing captures both sides of the street elevations (opposite each other), and the river rushing under the bridge. I was interested to see if I could capture the specificity of an experience (in time) but also an abstraction, or generalities of a place; it is both poetically atmospheric and a precise recording of a particular duration. It is a way of reading the experience of the city without being able to see the city at all." Lily Jencks

The Composer + The Architect
Hannah Peel is a Northern Irish artist, composer, producer and broadcaster. Her career includes the song-based 'Awake But Always Dreaming' album, which became an ode to her grandmother’s mind as she lived with dementia; the electronic ruralism of 'Chalk Hill Blue', an album recorded with the poet Will Burns; and the space-themed 'Mary Casio: Journey to Cassiopeia', scored for synthesisers and a 30-piece colliery brass band.
In 2018 she conducted and wrote all the orchestral arrangements for Paul Weller’s shows at London's Royal Festival Hall and contributed to his new no.1 album ‘On Sunset’. A year later Peel composed and recorded the soundtrack for 'Game of Thrones: The Last Watch' which earned her a 2019 Emmy nomination for ‘Outstanding Music Composition For A Documentary Series Or Special (Original Dramatic Score)’.
In 2020 she created the soundtrack for the BBC documentary 'Lee Miller – A Life On The Frontline' and scored the four-part TV thriller 'The Deceived', as well writing her own new work which will be announced in early 2021. Hannah is also a presenter on the BBC Radio 3 show 'Night Tracks'.
