 About the Book 

Originally released in October 2000, Notate is one of the finest books of its genre, owing much to the English art musicians such as Brian Eno (Foreshadowed), Robert Fripp (Dark Water) as well as nods to Stan Getz and David Sylvian. Notate featuresMoreOriginally released in October 2000, Notate is one of the finest books of its genre, owing much to the English art musicians such as Brian Eno (Foreshadowed), Robert Fripp (Dark Water) as well as nods to Stan Getz and David Sylvian. Notate features some of Hayes strongest work in this field like Re-dawn, Creating Future Tense and One Thousand Years. The book also has a French flavour (Provence, La Corniche) as it was part written there and during the writing stage while at University, Hayes developed a big crush on France, reading among others Celine and Sartre and as many a young romantic before him dreamt of living in Paris.Notate began life in 1995 as its predecessor A Lyrical Oasis neared completion. The end result is hence the young man’s rite of passage through travel, sex and of loneliness and especially the night – its own character. Hayes was also resident at the legendary Paris bookstore Shakespeare and Co during the writing stage. A time that also saw fellow resident Jeremy Mercer write his own memoir ‘Time Was Soft There.’ Sadly, the dream of life in Paris did not last long amid the bookstore’s squalor and Hayes was forced to return to the UK to complete Notate.
