Ellie says ... "Delta is inspired by the way electrical pulses transmit information around the brain, especially after trauma. At first the memories come back slowly but then the floodgates open! It reminded me of a TV documentary I’d seen where a dried-up river bed was filled with water after a monsoon. The water found its way through all the previously carved chasms and cracks in the bed (not dissimilar to the grooves on the surface of a brain) and then into a large river.

“Delta was created entirely on violin, with my pizzicato chopped up and spread across drum sample pads. This guided me into playing patterns that wouldn’t have fallen naturally under my fingers.”
