The inspiration for this piece was theories around what would happen when entering a black hole. Obviously most likely death, but this is my music interpretation of the words of Astronomer Kip Thorne (2014, p46) “Black holes are made from warped space and warped time...Black holes can spin, just as Earth spins. A spinning black hole drags space around it into a vortex-type whirling motion”.
