This large scale live audiovisual performance piece focuses on a number of themes relevant to the 21st century, based around the actions of whistleblower Edward Snowden; loss of faith and security, invasion of privacy and personal sacrifice. The piece explores the consequences of this situation through electronic sound, acoustic instrumentation and live visuals, through the gestures and performance from live electronics performers, a clarinetist and string section, which are analysed and interact with the real-time visuals.
