FLEE FROM WAR + THE BIG EXHALE
2017 - 2019
Since early 2017, David has been working with Kurdish artist, musician and instrument maker Farhad Bandesh, an asylum seeker currently detained on Manus Island. David has produced two songs for Farhad, recorded into a phone while in detention and sent down to David’s studios in Melbourne. The resulting work, titled ‘Flee From War’ and ‘The Big Exhale’, were released through Wantok Musik and gained major media attention from the ABC, The Guardian, and SBS. All proceeds from the sales of both tracks are donated to Refugee Legal, and to help provide support for Farhad’s future.
