Seaworthy is the project of Sydney’s Cameron Webb. 1897 is the second longplayer after Map in Hand in 2006. It belongs on 12k. It is heavy on minimalist guitar textures and re-recorded installations of field recordings. It was recorded at the site of a hundred year old decommissioned ammunitions bunker. The longplayer is named after the bunker’s year of construction. It is a profoundly poignant piece of work. It inspired me to write this poem.
This poem is entitled, Oh 12k, what refuge you provide for the lonely and the broken-hearted.
