Primordial Chaos evokes a dark and disordered time, at the dawn of the universe. From out of the murky depths of the orchestra emerge free-floating clouds of sound that waft over constantly fluctuating harmonies of many perfect fifths - music of spheres. A lonely, humanistic trumpet call then leads into a section of ferocious aleatory, a tangle of motifs clashing as if churned up by vast gravitational forces.
