Work Overview

It's nice to have written at least one piece, if only 3 minutes long ,that could possibly oultlive me, that I might be remembered with a tune that people can remember, even sing/whistle, rather than as just  a vague concept. The prognosis is good, I am 80, the tune is already 35 years old, of course it's best known to older generations, but for the youngies, it can be downloaded from innumerable sources, my latest pride a ring tone on my mobile. And if my numerous clonings have never taken  off by themselves, together they build an orchestral sound that serves Australia well.
