This is somewhat minimalistic, and polyphonic between the three players. It includes a number of sections in which the tempo of one of the pianists gradually speeds up or slows down while the others keep a steady pulse. Like Raag Gezellig it is in 7 beats per bar, but unlike Raag Gezellig it is fast throughout. The theme is the English folk-melody Are you going to Scarborough Fair.
A studio recording (performed by Steven Kings, Daniella Acker and John Pitts) is available from Hyperion/1equalmusic www.hyperion-records.co.uk/dc.asp?dc=D_1EMIPM08
