about

Breaking a 6-year-long discographical silence, my fourth album after 2007's Les Ondes Silencieuses, and the first one I made in my newly- adopted town of San Sebastián, Spain, during the epically rainy winter of 2012! My first time singing, playing percussion, and introducing the treble viola da gamba that became the key instrument on Captain of None! Also featured are my bass viola da gamba, classical guitar, clarinet, toy gamelan and piano. The track I produced last, "Breaking Up the Earth", paved the way for Captain of None in terms of production.

Track Name: Push the Boat onto the Sand
Push the boat onto the sand

O to sail away
Track Name: Ursa Major Find
As I was walking by the Great Bear in the northern sky
I found the seashell missing from the shore below
Track Name: Humming Fields
Come bend your bow, shoot your arrow
Clouds will explode into rain

Birds are asleep down by the reeds
Rocked by the wind I see them breathe

In lonely fields I’ve been humming
Only the grass overhearing
The cat woke me up with his dreaming
In lonely fields I’ve been humming
Only the grass overhearing
Track Name: The Moon Like a Bell
The moon – the moon – the moon – the moon

The moon like a bell is swinging
I’ve got the ropes to make it ring
But as the clouds are fast asleep
I’ll just shake her gently

Moon be bright and shine
Track Name: Raven
Raven, why stare at me with those eyes?

Don’t you know I love you

Just as you are?
Track Name: Moonlit Sky
They’ve only left
The wind the wind the wind the wind
For you and me
And the moonlit sky
Track Name: The Weighing of the Heart
O check the scales, dog-headed ape
Look out!
The time has come to weigh my heart

Make me triumphant
Make me righteous

So no crocodile-lion can take away my heart

O you my heart be feather-light!
