Thrown: into a busy space full of reflective surfaces, bouncing and echoing the sounds around, sometimes splitting them up into differently echoing parts. The piece takes inspiration from ‘delay’ effects, where a set of gradually changing repetitions or echoes can be created. At times a more sustained melody emerges from the passing echoes, connecting and driving them forward.
