This music was developed for an animation work by Damian Gascoigne. It started as a piano improvisation, was briefly realised on multi-tracked cello before finding its way back to piano.

There are beats made from a modified virtual 808 drum machine, and from a time-stretched reversed breakbeat.

Rhythmically, there's an interplay between the piano ostinati in 6/8 time and the dub delays & reverbs, with simple triads in the left hand creating a mysterious harmonic space with an uplifting resolution.

The ambient dub draws out these themes over a long period, beginning with the stretched & pitched-down version used by Damian Gascoigne for a beautiful animation which was projection-mapped onto the inside spiral staircase at Customs House in Sydney's Circular Quay.
