Quiet Space — #165 — Part Timer

John McCaffrey has been creating blissful music under a variety of guises over the years. He started in a duo, Clickits while in the UK, moved to Melbourne and has been creating incredible sounds that weave modern classical, folk and electronic stylings under the name Part Timer, Upward Arrows and Scissors & Sellotape. He recently got in touch with a series of works created/compiled during lockdown last year, so I thought it time to focus on his amazing work. I’d forgotten about some of his releases as I put this together and it’s been a real pleasure to reacquaint myself with his work. I hope you love it as well.
