This electronic piece lasting almost 36 minutes is based on the three musical letters C-H-E, or C-B-natural-E. It appears to be a longer version of song for christine, which also uses C-H-E. The latter was recorded in Reddy’s parents’ home at 43 Nugget Road, Durban on 23 January 1984, and probably refers to Reddy’s colleague at the University of Durban-Westville at the time, Christine Lucia. It is safe to assume that che was created around the same time as song for christine.
The photo of Christine Lucia was taken in Durban in 1987.
