The piece was commissioned by Crouch End Festival Chorus. It takes flamenco as its starting point, and contains an entertaining array of ululations, groans, footstamping, and finger clicking.
First Performance: Crouch End Festival Chorus, 20th October 1990, London
The piece has no metre or pulse, and the conductor will need to cue each group entry. The piece consists of a series of figures which are repeated for approximate durations. A wide range of vocal effects are called for.
