Departure is a 6 minute work for piano. It was written as a personal response to the early weeks of the lockdown, in April 2020. It grew from these words:

I write this for you, your eyes and others.
I neither rush nor wish for departure
but have prepared this: a stay-bag of words
ready for whenever needed
reaching for any light to illuminate
the shadow behind a sunny spring day
in March 2020, in a shut-down London.
