Scenes From The Island features an electronic musician, Tudor, who moves into the apartment building at the centre of the novel’s action, and becomes integral to the tragic direction of the story. As I’m a dangerous loner with too much time on my hands (aren’t we all these days?) I’ve put together a playlist of songs I associate with Tudor’s music. Some of these tracks inspired the writing of the novel, while some I’ve come to recently but have decided to claim as part of Tudor’s back catalogue. Theme music to seventies television, field recordings and science fiction bleeps, the sounds here represent a part of the past but also the future, evoking nostalgia and imagination, heartbreak and landscapes.

I'm a writer and poet. My first novel, All the Dogs, appeared in 2008, and was described by Niall Griffiths as 'a stirring debut, a compellingly written tract on the importance of finding a place on the earth.' My fiction has appeared in London Noir, Crimewave, Black Static and 3AM. I live in London, where, amongst other things, I teach Creative Writing for the Open University. https://absenceclub.com View all posts by Dan Bennett
