Irregular Correspondence Mixcloud

During Melbourne’s winter lockdown, I spent some time making a couple of mixes. The first was commissioned for an online radio show and will be broadcast next month (stay tuned…). The second, Irregular Correspondence, I made off my own bat because I enjoyed making the first one so much. In compiling it, I found myself reflecting on loss, grief, and this strange year.
