‘He walked with a limp… L-I-M-P, pronounced limp‘ - Spike Milligan This piece explores rhythms with a 3:2 ratio (for instance a dotted crotchet and a crotchet) whose lopsided, unequal gait evokes a limping rhythm. There is a fair amount of experimentation with metre, tempo and co-ordination, with 3:2 rhythms at various speeds, linked by fifth-based harmony.
