…almost at a pace that I can’t keep up. Â I have never composed so much in so little time in all my life. Â It’s very exciting. Â The music is so far working out to be very text-led. Â The players and singer have to follow the pace and rhythm of spoken text, rather than the more conventional method of rhythmicising text to fit musical metrics. Â It puts more strain on the brain of the players, I think, but ultimately will lead to something that it much more alive and less constrained by beats and bars. Â (well, there aren’t any of those.)
Here’s a promo video that Nick made for the production.
