These songs were inspired by news stories from Reuters in 2011.

These four songs were originally recorded by Jude Cowan at Bark Studios, Walthamstow by Brian O'Shaughnessy. The unmixed WAV files from these sessions were sent to Wim Oudijk in Den Haag (The Hague, The Netherlands) who composed and arranged new musical parts. The result is an EP of 4 co-composed tracks - the songs and lyrics set within the imaginative and expressive arrangements.

The original recordings can be found on Jerome Poirier's net label Three Legs Duck on the album, World News Vision (March 2011).

Jude's first collection of poetry about Reuters news stories - For The Messengers - is published by Donut Press (2011). Her second collection The Groodoyals of Terre Rouge (set in Mauritius) is published by Dark Windows Press (Autumn 2012). She regularly improvises songs based on Reuters news stories as an ongoing project called World News Vision.

Wim Oudijk is a Dutch composer, producer, arranger and songwriter from Den Haag. He formed the Navel Orange Choir in 1976, followed by the group Trespassers W in 1980. By 1998 he embarked on a solo career co-forming the Disco Fair record label with long-time friend Bert Koops and creating a number of solo releases. He has also produced and mastered for a whole host of artists including Todd Dillingham, Atilla The Stockbroker and Snippet
