A pastiche of musical snippets creating brilliant flashes of music, this 12-minute work for piano and CD was written as an ingenious response to a negative review of Hindson’s orchestral work SPEED. Whilst the work at times demonstrates musical correlations with certain forms of popular music styles, it was also composed using 1960s-style modular techniques. The work is thus very sectional, and relies more heavily on contrast rather than exclusive motivic development to carry the music forward.
‘… deliberately provocative, musical leftovers seasoned with wit.’
