‘SOMETIMES EVERYTHING FALLS APART’ takes a simple melodic line as it’s starting point and gradually builds and morphs into a distorted and warped unstoppable machine. It’s a bit like a wrong Bolero.

Commissioned by Decibel with funds provided by the Leverhulme Trust and first performed by them at the Frontiers Festival, Birmingham in November 2011.
