Artist’s talk summary


Below is a breif summary of my artist’s talk at Eastside Projects last week. Despite forgetting the laws of thermodynamics and John Cage’s infamous quote, “music is the organisation of sound,” the talk seemed to be well received. Many thanks for those who came to hear it, and to Liz at EP and Arlene for organising it.
