The Rising Tide – The Soundtrack

The Rising Tide Soundtrack

A soundtrack for a novel? Sounds weird, but bear with me: the writing of a novel involves hundreds of hours of solitude, and music is a nice way of keeping loneliness at bay.

I wrote the novel between the start of 2016 and late 2017 and consumed a lot of music while hammering away at the keyboard. In that period, Prince tragically passed away, so too David Bowie. There were two Clockenflap festivals in Hong Kong so I was fortunate enough to hear live Massive Attack, Nile Rogers and George Clinton & Parliament.

Below are some the range of songs I listened to while I wrote, many of which found their way into the book in one way or another.
