In 2012, I visited Washington D.C. to interview witnesses of the crash of American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon on 11 September 2001, following similar approaches I have used to create music about the events of 9/11. But events that summer took a different turn. By day, I recorded sounds of helicopters, jet planes and fountains around the Pentagon and its 9/11 memorial; by night, cicadas, sirens and lonely pedestrian crossings. The Senior Counsel for the American government’s 9/11 Commission encouraged me to utilise the recordings of air traffic controllers who were searching the skies for Flight 77 minutes before it crashed.

Cellist Christian Elliot recorded Requiem77 for the CD The Music of 9/11, Vol.1 on Métier MSVCD 92106.
