Crab Legs David Parfit

Crab Legs was inspired in part by a low tide walk along the rocky southern coast of Sidney Island, B.C. during which the sound of small crabs scuttling into hiding as the rocks were disturbed was quite compelling. The second form of inspiration was the large steel sculpture near the water at Macaulay Point in Victoria, B.C. from which every sound in this piece originated.
