NOTE: Postmodernism in music – a foray into Richaard’s camp. Similar to my composition Agwara-Nanga-Wolof (#44), I’m not proud to admit the use of postmodern strategies in this piece, as it was a conflict for me. The intention was not to use simple references, but rather templates against which experimental methods can be compared with the original. Also I guess another idea was to write something funny…
