Tyneham House

Artist Tyneham House
Title Tyneham House
Label Second Language and Clay Pipe Music
Year 2012
Design Illustrations by Frances Castle
Music Wistful, gentle, sad
Notes As featured on Creative Review’s iPad app.

I read ‘The Village That Died For England: The Strange Story of Tyneham’ (Amazon link) many years ago. It’s a sad tale of the abuse of power by the British army on a small English village. Read more on Wikipiedia. It finds a slight echo in my own experience wherein the beautiful Yorkshire moor above my parent’s old house was peremptorily closed to public access without explanation and has stayed that way in all the years since.

The music here is reedy with the memory of lost summer days and distant tragedy and reminds me a little of Paul Giovanni’s wonderful soundtrack to The Wicker Man. The musicians have chosen to remain anonymous. The design is a typical delight courtesy of this joint venture between Second Language and Clay Pipe Music.

The original run is sold out, but there’s talk of a small reissue – keep an eye on the labels’ websites – don’t hesitate to snap up a copy if you can.

  20. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
