for string orchestra
2014, 3 minutes
The piece is based on the sculpture created by Richard Wilson for Heathrow’s Terminal 2 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.
