for orchestra

Composition Date: 2016
Duration: 00:07:53


Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 1 x Full orchestra
Programme Note:
Quiet. Comfort. Tranquil. Now, destroy thought. Enter Noise. There is rumbling of the floor from the passing truck. Is that a storm approaching? A school of cars honking and screetching down your doors. Your grocery stores, beeps and buzzes and Noise and Noise and Noise. Even in the (un)comfort of your home, your walls are shaking. Suburban subwoofers feeding a false sense of individuality to your neighbour. Shaking your head at the walls shaking. Media, buzzes, beeps and pulses. And no one seems to notice - Everyone so (un)comfortably numb. Do you not feel? Do you not feel the Storm?
