Based on Moss' book - 'Vanishing New York: a city that lost its soul', in which he talks about his favourite things about a city, in particular New York.
I took the liberty to reflect on my favourite things about some of my favourite cities, the irregularities, the movement, the constant noise and colour. A myriad of excitement and fear that we could wake up one day and our lives could completely change.
Instrumentation: Flute, violin, cello, percussion & electronics.
