"How did you arrive at the 'Lost Wishes' titles of 'Uyea Sound', 'Cloudberry', 'Off to Sleep' and 'The Three Sisters' - what is the inspiration behind each of these pieces?
Robert: 'Uyea Sound' was based around a Porl demo idea - it was called 'Old Scotland'... ('Uyea Sound' is a place in Scotland). 'Cloudberry' was based around one of my demo ideas - it was called ..... 'Cloudberry'! (a Scandinavian liqueur). 'Off to Sleep' was based around a Simon demo idea - it was called 'Off to Sleep'!. 'The Three Sisters' was based around a Teddy demo idea - it was called 'T3' (the third idea on his home demo tape) - I preferred 'The Three Sisters'."
