74 Front Street is intended as a musical response to the work of American sculptor Fred Sandback (1943-2003), in particular his string sculptures which are intentionally uncomplicated, minimal and strikingly beautiful. The relationship between these string works and music is rather distinct. Indeed, before formally studying sculpture Sandback made a number of string instruments. He has said that his string works evolved from a desire to rid art of excessive decoration and while there are instances of activity in 74 Front Street, much of the piece aims to reflect the simplicity of Sandback’s work.

74 Front Street is dedicated to Steve Davismoon
