Notes on the Pieces:
Ballroom Dancing was written during my visit to the Darmstadt International Music Courses in July 2012. It is based on a rumba pattern put under a magnifying glass, its particles dissected and inspected. Each now-individual unit swells and develops, and when it reaches a certain point of saturation, the elements begin to interrelate one with the other.
