The Default Mode

The Default Mode was written in response to Disquiet Junto Project 0322: The Wanderer.

The idea of this piece was exactly the opposite of Disquiet Junto Project 0321: Let’s Active. “The idea is to use musical/acoustic features that convey and evoke sadness in the listener, since in our recent study we demonstrate that sad (compared with happy) music enhances mind-wandering levels (shown both behaviourally and with neuroimaging methods).”

As I wanted to link the two, I used some of the ideas within Fighting The Default Mode as the basis of its formation.

The Default Mode was written for Bass Clarinet, Violas, Cellos, and String Bass.
