Fascinating composition combining plunderphonic sample techniques with bold string orchestrations in disorienting, mutating arrangement.

When the complexity of the human brain's retained information and the inherent properties which constitute a 'life', an 'individual', a 'person' are catastrophically damaged after blood - 'life's fuel' - ruptures the previously organised and essential control centres, absolute mayhem follows. The cold, hard, indisputable truth, and one that we all have no alternative but to accept, is that "...a life as it is now, is not what it was, and never will be again
