"Cannie " (for Joe)
This is primarily a sample piece using a lot of small samples and a minimum of processing techniques. It is very analogue and human - full of recognisable pieces.
Inspired by the death of my grandfather (who taught me to listen and be precise and thoughtful), and the environments we lived in when I was young (especially the Mallee country of Victoria, Australia).
