Living room 1978

Composition by Moray Newlands. 

"The sound of the Super 8 Camera immediately transported me back to my parents living room and my dad trying to capture our lives and project some home made films. We always had a piano hence the composition based around a slightly out of tune old piano,  I wanted the composition to capture that immediate feeling of childhood nostalgia that hit me as soon as I heard the camera sound. I still have his old camera. Maybe it's time to get it going again."
