G.B. (Geof Burridge) a cousin of mine - the only member of my family who had any idea of what my music was about - who was my 'whanau' during the writing of Waituhi - he was headmaster of Tokoroa High and set up the first multicultural marae in a New Zealand school. He died suddenly in his early 40s in 1985. Oh! and the notes G and B do play a part in the piece. It was written for bassonist Michael Burns who was a student at VUW at the time.
