Aaron composed the music for this sound piece for BBC Radio 3. Often blurring the boundaries between sound design and music, he worked on a score based of constantly falling themes. He wanted to create a sound world that was at once cold and oppressive, and peaceful and beautiful. Jump blue was nominated for Best Single Drama at the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2017.
