Philipp Glass’s piece, Metamorphosis II takes its inspiration form a story by Kafka in which a salesman becomes a large insect. Tim Hecker’s The Piano Drop is reminiscent of the forces of nature such as the ocean, wind and volcanic activity. The last three songs are linked to the current political climate in Europe this summer, with the raise of xenophobic politicians in the UK and the reshuffle of balance.
