This chapter presents the reflective musical life-story of Tristram. His musical life seems to capture what the changing self might look or sound like musically, from his early sampling of musical instruments, his rejection of drumkit ‘coolness’, his strong sense of being a mallet percussionist, his impressive journey as a bassoon player and composer, only to make a dramatic realignment as a young adult as an aspiring writer, dancer, and singer, having rejected instrumental music almost entirely — for the time being.
