This piece was produced enitrely using samples sourced from a single interview and dialysis session  with artist Anthony Breslin, recorded on an iPhone. The samples were accentuated and manipulated  using various sound and design software and organised to reflect one of the topics on which Breslin reflected that afternoon. This is the second of a series of works being produced from this single session.
