Inert Mass is a feedback-heavy composition in a dense structure accompanied by shimmering details and melodic fragments. The material is based around a diatonic tone cluster, which remains stable throughout the duration of the piece (i.e. forever). It was created solely in SuperCollider, utilizing its many possibilities to amplify as well as limit randomness.
