Mills studied with Colin Matthews and Anne Boyd. His compositions on this CD are
best summed up in his own words: "I have spent a number of years working outdoors,
which means that I witness this daily emergence, activity and return to stillness,
shape... Consequently, there are also sounds suggesting breezes, textures which
are built from super-imposed bird song-like groups and harmonies and rhythms evoking
the sea to be found in these pieces."
