Paul Speare - Time and Place

Time and Place is my current music video project, only available on YouTube at present, but I am currently producing four more pieces for release as an EP.  The project title refers to the variety of time signatures which I use and the places referred to in the titles, places which have had some significance in my life.  Also, the time had come for me to finally embark on a project of my own after many years of thinking about it, and the place - Canterbury, where I now live - seemed right for this.


At the end of March 2022 I gathered together a small group of fantastic musicians for two days at Space Sequoia, a studio in the countryside near Canterbury.  We rehearsed and recorded four new instrumental pieces which I'd been working on for nearly a year.  These were released individually on Fridays from 22nd April 2022. 

1. Wincheap Shoe Step

2. Hamilton Ho.

I am already working on the next phase of this project which will be released on music streaming services in late Autumn 2022. Some of these will feature invited soloists.

The players on all the pieces are:


Hilary Cameron     keyboard

Simon Golding      electric guitar

Flo Moore             double bass/bass guitar

Jonathan Ward     drums

Myself                   baritone saxophone/flute/

                             alto flute/bass clarinet

3. Fog Over Dagenham Dock

4. Dark Energy
