Thanks for watching and for the feedback, Claudio !
It’s a challenge to state, develop and resolve a piece of music in 1:30. (Unless it’s purely ambient…) I’d like to compose a single, 10m piece for the next one, roughly but not rigidly aligned to the images.
We are booked !! Arrive Heathrow midday 6/18, drive up to York 6/19, few days up there, then outside Hexham for a few days, then Cambridgeshire for a few days, then back to London and on a plane the next morning.
Be aware that Heathrow sacked multiple workers when COVID hit, and got caught out by the removal of restrictions. There have been having difficulties trying to hire, train and get security clearance for new workers, and COVID is still pretty widespread here.
There have been huge queues coupled with IT breakdowns. Hopefully, this will get cleared substantially by June, but I’d Google “heathrow queues” or something when journey planning within in the UK.
Also, no withstanding that there are no mask mandates there are at least 30,000 new infections per day and 20,000 hospitalised. I’d recommend wearing FFP2 masks in confined spaces (US N95 standard)
Thx - We will be watching as things develop. Airlines are dropping their mask mandates - we may wear one anyway, despite being triple-vaxxed now and likely quad-vaxxed by then. We’re somewhat accustomed to inhuman queues at Heathrow (especially at Immigration), and upon arriving (at least), it’d be more an inconvenience than a vacation imperilment. For the journey back, when we have a flight to catch, that may be a different matter.
If you’re available and so inclined, we’d be happy to meet up for a pint or coffee/tea when we get there.
