Martin Kay - The Deep End Recording / by Steve Barry

It was an absolute treat to record Martin Kay’s surfing and Indian-gong-inspired work The Deep End at a new art & music space in Alexandria, on a brand new Fazioli and a room with an ear-boggling 7-second reverb. It’s not often you can get up off the piano bench after playing a chord and still hear it bouncing around the room for a few seconds.
