Prompt Critical Core by Lex Metcalfe

About the project

 

I was invited to compose a piece for Spectrum Music‘s 100 Seconds To Midnight concert series in mid-2020. I was excited by the challenge of writing music for other musicians to perform; something I don’t often do. The song was written from the conceptual jumping-off point of early nuclear armament development, and the criticality events that peppered those early days.
