Out on a limb
The producer and multi-instrumentalist is also a keen hiker, and has written a piece of music to accompany a walk through some of his favourite ancient woodland.
The 15-minute piece was inspired by a walk at Croft Castle in Herefordshire in the UK, which boasts a 1000-year-old oak tree, an avenue of Spanish chestnut trees dating from the 1500s and an ancient stand of Hawthorn.
Utley is particularly taken with the oak "That's been there since the time of King Harold. It's a really odd looking thing because it's so old. I love that these trees have such amazing, long lives."
