About the work
Beginning and developing along 19th century European common harmonic and melodic practice, Thunder Drum's first movement Elegy for a Lost World is a vague reminiscence of a two-theme classical sonata form. The industrial-like “quantized” loops in the playback audio of the second movement, Games, are combined with pre-recorded samples of Inuit throat singing, while the third movement, Reconstitution, begins quietly with a timid thematic development, reaching an epic, triumphant but also symbolically hollow ending.
