Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Watch your feet start to tap while your body moves with the laid-back energy of this work. The title, a pun on a now commonly used phrase refers to the works underlying structure which is based around a 4/4 time signature but evokes the feel of other time signatures such as 5/4, 3/8 and 7/8, providing a rhythmically challenging and engaging work. The listener is bathed in sound (and for those lucky enough to see a live performance infectious movement abounds) and led across a dynamic landscape of feels and grooves. A complete recording of this work can be found on the REVOLUTIONS CD, available from
