Photo from the radio peeps!

Last Thursday, some lovely chaps from ABC Canberra's local radio station came and did some interviewing, recording, and photographing of a rehearsal for the Harrison Organ Concerto.
They took a great photo of me playing my boxes (and a bass drum): 
These are boxes that my dad hand crafted according to instructions in the score.  They took him ages and ages to make!  They are cubes, 21", 16" and 11" (not that I usually use Imperial, but that was the specification).  The striking surface of each cube is a thinner gauge plywood.  It took a lot of calculations and measurements and tricky pre-drilling of holes, but we made them and then my mum varnished them.  Aren't they good?
My dad is the best.
Yay craft!
