Night poetry is the collected DIY electronic & sound experiments from scatterings & scribblings, discarded samples, homeless & lost sounds & unused vocal samples. Displaced & replaced. These tracks were assembled during the night & early hours & took on an identity of night poetry.
Composed & produced in a loft in Cornwall by Sky High Diamonds. All vocals by Sky High Diamonds except for the vocal sample in ‘Precious,’ which is by Rachel Gaskin - Whitrod.
This is composed of re imagined segments from a larger track that is still a work in progress.

The scattered remnants of the wine glass tunings from 2015 that formed the backbone and concept for ‘Sounds Like Porcelain,’ these recordings are still rattling around, inspiring & squeezing their way, very occasionally, into various projects. I like these as isolated pockets of sound.
An all vocal experiment, assembled from one word, stretched & manipulated & put together as a very precise 2 minute piece for the compilation ‘Utterances’ to be released on ‘Linear Obsessional’ on Dec 24th 2016.
This one emerged, and kept emerging. The backbone is made up of 3 layers from one displaced vocal sample from a previous track- ‘She.’ The other sounds had also been tried out elsewhere, some were unwanted & discarded in an unnamed folder. I threw them altogether & waited.
Night poetry 4.14
Composed using an old squeezebox, a bit battered & creaky, you can hear the air pushing in & out as I move it gently around. This track originated from ‘Helioglobe (Breath & Words)’ & has been floating about in various projects but never really settled. This is its fourth & final reincarnation.
"For those who do not sleep may discover within the stillness a certain kind of night poetry."
