This body of work is a two-part series that explores music cognition and the re-collection of memories. The first phase of the work was made in 2012 as a photographic response to a piece of music. In this work I investigated the parallels between sound, imagery and the cognitive process. During this time my father was ill. He later passed away. Consequently my relationship to the music changed, now harbouring emotions that transcend my initial experience. When I hear the music I re-engage with memories, evoking an emotional response. In the second phase I returned to the forest a year later, focusing on my attachment to place. This time, not being guided by the music, but being aware of the associated sensory memories and the personal significance the music has now come to hold.
