'The waves like braids, unravelling' was composed in response to material found in the Women Artists of the North East Library after a visit to the archive in autumn 2019.

Through approaching the library collection as a mesh of textures and interweaving stories, Jayne Dent has composed a piece of music that journeys through electric and acoustic spaces, inner and outer worlds, evoking the touch of fabric and water on skin. Samples collide and fade and lay across each other, replicating the tangled nature of the archive and wild water currents.
