The sounds accompanying waste disposal can be seen as an expression of transience and waste. On the other hand the sounds of glass being smashed and reused can be symbolic of the process of rebirth and recycling. Recycling glass can also be symbolic of the transformation of something old into something new.
The composition is intended as a creative experiment that explores the sounds and sonic impressions of reusing materials and sustainability. It seeks to aurally experience a sustainable future in which materials and resources are used responsibly and effectively.
