The phrase, 'stitching in the ditch', indicates a sewing technique of seam reinforcement. In 'Stitching in the Ditch' this notion of pulling extremes together resonates on a musical level - my sound inspirations come from construction sites (pneumatic drills, hand saws, pile drivers), classical repertoire (Debussy's La Mer), and instrument tuning (the organ of St Thomas' Church in Leipzig). Images that at first seem miles apart start to swim towards each other.
