Eo is a commission for bass trombone and tape. It explores aspects of temporal space and because the soloist records three alternate bass trombone parts to make the tape, the piece is performed by the performer and their former selves simultaneously. Inspired by the Sun's favorite tv show "The Flash", Eo is the final piece on Sun's upcoming solo bass trombone album Tachycardia.
