Sean studied classical 16th century painting school in Sydney which eventually led to an invitation to participate in a program at the University of the Philippines in 2007. Through this program, he was invited to study universal language and to exhibit collaborative work at the Vargas Museum in Manila.

 

The song "Echoes" is a collaboration between artists from Sagada and Baguio in the Philippines and Parkes in Australia. This specific collaboration exemplifies the exchange between musicians who recorded and contributed traditional chants and original lyrics.
