For Borthwick and Richard Tsang, the issue of style is fused with modernist concerns of time and temporality. Borthwick’s song ‘Time being’ ‘moves progressively further away’ from stylistic connections to RVW ‘as if trying to escape time’. In his words, ‘the music – like the poem – suggests that there is no escape, at least not in this song’. (Lee Tsang, 2010)
