Lightship95, originally commissioned by Trinity House Corporation, was built in Portsmouth in 1939. It is one of the finest and possibly one of the last examples of an all-riveted steel ship beautifully made to withstand all weather conditions and frequent collisions. The ship is classed as a heritage vessel and one of only a few left in the world.
Restored and renovated she is now a purpose-built fully equipped recording studio Lightship 95, owned and run by percussionist and sound engineer Ben Phillips. The whole 1513 performance was recorded live by Ben and his team from within the moving vessel.
Master (1513 performance): Peter Duggan (with tugs Tilly and General)
