Composed in 2008, with the support of Australia Council Funding, this work was originally to be performed by the original Adam Simmons Toy Band. It was finally premiered in 2015 at the Festival of Slow Music by Michael and the Adam Simmons Creative Music Ensemble.
Starting with the classic concerto form, with the contrast between soloist and ensemble, the music was innformed by a mix of Confucius’ quote, films by Werner Herzog, John Zorn’s Arcana collections, and paczki and coffee at the Wye River General Store. This work was Adam’s first long form composition. Aspects of the composition crystallised during the writing have since been developed in later works
