About the work

The piece was written for the wind bands of the Kirkless Music Centre, who gave the first performance at the McAlpine Stadium in Huddersfield. The piece draws on the rich and exciting soundscape which confronts someone who opens the doors of a music arcade.

First Performance: 1997

Technical notes

Members of a wind band are asked to follow a series of written instructions on the compilation of the musical material, devising short sections, and working from given material in other cases.
