The Earth's Tilt

The earth's spin axis is tilted with respect to its orbital plane. This is what causes the seasons. When the earth's axis points towards the sun, it is summer for that hemisphere. When the earth's axis points away, winter can be expected.

Tilt is a song cycle inspired by the four seasons. 12 tracks for every month of the year

The lyrics are both in the voice of Gaia and the observer, weaving between the perspectives whilst also considering the female cycle mirroring the seasons. Combining different compositional and production techniques Bertie weaves field recordings into the music bringing a sense of optimism and joy whilst cradling a sense of nostalgia and loss to match the eternal turning of the seasons.


I composed the 4 main songs, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter in TILT over a 12 month period, writing each song during it's respective season. At the same time I collected field recordings which I used to create the interconnecting electoacoustic compositions. I am releasing a song every month starting in April 2024.
