Jeni's sharing poetry, inspiration and processes with us, exploring sensations of Phoenix park, and her discovery of the process for creating music from this - experimenting with turning space into sound, numerical meanings in music, and the various tools she's using to explore.
Patrick's second Play Date with cellist and vocalist Sena Feldmann resulted in an ear catching and sweetly nostalgic song dwelling on experiences of love, and hie brings us deep inside his process of how musical ideas shift and mutate, and how he works to bring music and lyrics together.
