"The Death of a Nation" is a piece utilizing pre-recorded media with live string quartet interacting with and adding commentary to the recording.

The entire pre-recorded media comes from an individual, we will call "The Orange Oaf," who often rambles incoherently due to a constant stream of thoughts needing to immediately escape his mouth, causing many nonsensical tangents and interjections into his speech as though one individual were occupying eight seats and having a solo round table discussion.

The composer of "The Death of a Nation" edited a speech so that the 'on script Orange Oaf' had his overarching speech while the interjections and tangents were channeled through several other speakers and "The Orange Oaf" could indeed speak the way he apparently thinks.
