"...Drawing on a minimalist language of interlocking rhythms and pitches, I use shifting patterns and ratios to convey a musical manifestation of beauty and order increasingly interrupted, ruptured, and finally destroyed...Global change does not operate in isolation but rather interacts with an almost bewildering array of natural variability modes and also with other human-driven effects at many scales. Especially important are those cases where interacting stresses cause a threshold to be crossed and a rapid change in state or functioning to occur. Finally, a tipping point is reached, where the patterns as we know them become completely destabilised, and all that is left is a roiling mass of dissonance, and ultimately darkness..."
