Shiva Creates, Destroys Adam Basanta

I was inspired by the Indian myth of creation, in which Shiva breathes the world into life, then eventually destroys it. I have attempted to convey this process over a minute of music using several sound images including bird and insect wing-fluttering. As the minute passes by, the sound images begin to blur and fuse together. Eventually the natural imagery disappears into the vacuum and is replaced by Shiva herself, represented in an ethereal drone.
