This piece has various performing versions, often arising from particular occasions and environments. All the materials used are derived from research and speculations about the sinking of the 'unsinkable' liner on 14 April 1912 after striking an iceberg on its maiden voyage. The initial starting point is the report of the ship's band playing the hymn tune 'Autumn' in the final moments of the ship's sinking. Other material is superimposed on this tune, including fragments of survivor interviews, Morse sequences, musical references to possible variations on the hymn tune, the sound of the iceberg's impact, and so on. Includes a set of parts with CD.
