WHEN APPLES BATTLE GRAVITY is a concept album (radio opera) about characters talking about the failure of communication systems and the idea of difference, in the global warming of cultural chill.
Ellis Whitaker is supposed to go to a party, instead slips through the looking glass into a strange night. Her journey across the city which never sleeps is punctuated by sonic disruptions, conversations from corners of other lives, memories, summing up the sense of discomfort coming from maimed communications.
