The poem and the piece are my expression of protest and anger at the continuing detonation of nuclear devices by several countries, especially the French in the Pacific. These 'tests' must stop!
Just as nuclear fallout gradually breaks down and destroys the balanced ecosystem, so my piece gradually breaks down, becoming at first unsettled, then more and more angry, until finally - the last breath!
Instrumentation: Trombone, percussion.
Duration: 11 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — AMEB Grade 8
