In this Skin was the first piece I had performed with Crash in their annual Free State night in 2012. It is a piece which fuses a number of minimalist ideas and expressive melodies in the strings against a disjointed and disruptive ensemble. It is compositional development as act of vandalism: disrupting the familiar and creating conflict within the ensemble. The heavy metal dropped tuned guitar owes a lot to Swedish Band Meshuggah and their brutal sound.
