So It Goes is inspired by a style of fiction which forms its plot through recollections of fragments of events. This has an effect of chasing thoughts and ideas around the author’s mind, while maintaining a strong sense of unity throughout the work’s discourse. This also amplifies a feeling of intimacy with the author, like a conversation with a great storyteller. This sensation manifests musically in So It Goes as a whirlwind journey through a number of textures, colors and ideas.
