I used the original piano samples from Midori's piece – the whole harmonic structure is based on this, in various degrees of recognition and abstraction. From dark rich glitchiness to icy glacial harmonies and an expanding out through my own singing voice, there is a relentlessness to the way the chords are restated, a sense of being haunted by a feeling or atmosphere, akin to remembering parts of a dream.
