About the work

This night song began its life having much in common with its relation, the opening movement of Words which is subtitled ‘a night song’.

As Another night song gradually evolved away from these origins the atmosphere of night transformed from eerie uncertainty into nocturnal calmness. Here the gentle rocking rhythms of the repetitions in the ensemble spin, evolve and fall back on themselves amidst a web of white noise from radios and paper sounds.
