Three-part album recorded by Duncan Blachford on a public access piano at Preston Market in Melbourne. Piano accompanies the incidental/environmental sounds of the location as midnight passes: security guards saunter, structures creak, fridges enter cyclic defrost, deliveries are unloaded, trains pass, mosquitos meet their electrified fate and occasionally a pedestrian drifts by.

“Ominously beautiful … [Suite for Piano] captures the strange allure of fluoroscently lit public environments in the dead of night: walkways and thoroughfares passed by millions, suddenly dead.” — Shaun Prescott, Crawlspace
