Produced while on a residency (based on Bas Jan Aders work In Search of the Miraculous) in Northern Ireland, Robertson adjusted the lyrics to the song ‘Ocean Wave’ by Epes Sargent (The song which Ader named his boat) and changed into morse code. Attempting to communicate with Ader using nautical flags off the coast, the book records Robertson’s desperate and somewhat hopeful quest to speak to Ader.
