"To disconcert is to throw into confusion.

This programme explores some of the disconcerting phenomena in our lives—how the structures we look to for cohesion (like ideas about progress, growth, or our place in nature) can fall apart.

Victor Arul's eponymous composition interrogates specifically one of the central tenets of Western modernity, that nature itself is inert and unconscious. This perspective has propelled us down the path of ecological crisis that is overwhelming us today. Similarly, Leilei Tian's scurrying, scraping, screaming duo for vibes and guitar—"Melting"—conjures up images of a planet overheating (for the sake of "economic growth"). Kari Watson's "Mx.Mechanica" incessantly repeats itself, the material accruing and glitching until it can no longer be sustained. The mercurial quartet of Luke Paulding delves into Babylonian mythology: the descent of the goddess Ishtar into the underworld, which ends all sexual activity on Earth."
