Slipstream was written for all-Australian String Orchestra Ruthless Jabiru as part of Sound and Music’s Portfolio Scheme.

The piece is based on the sculpture created by Richard Wilson for Heathrow Airport in 2014. Slipstream is inspired by the exhilarating potential of flight, coupled with the physical aesthetics of aircraft. Constructed in aluminium, the piece aimed to solidify the twisting velocity of a stunt plane manoeuvring through the volume of the new terminal. I aimed to capture this dynamism musically; energetic lines twist and turn with a constant sense of energy.
