Nearly all activity on earth relies on circadian rhythm. For humans, our existence is governed by a biochemical “circadian clock,” a mechanism in the brain synchronised almost exactly with the 24-hour day that allows our neural pathways to adjust to changes in our environment. However, this seemingly universal process can malfunction, where a disruption of the circadian clock sets off a chain reaction of biological and behavioural abnormalities. Clock Dies considers the musical ensemble as an ecosystem of interconnected internal processes that become irregular, exaggerated, and fractured due to the disruption of regular oscillations.
