Butler, Martin (2008) From the Fairground of Dreams. [Composition]

Full text not available from this repository.


Set in two parts, the shorter opening section starts as a bubbling under the surface, building to a frenetic, giddy climax showcasing some exciting percussion and rhythms before submerging below again.
The second section uses harmonics, more spacious melodic lines, solos and muted instruments to enhance the dream-like quality that the piece depicts. However, the excitement and contrast of the first section returns, exemplifying the multiple moods and confusion of both the fairground that the title suggests and the cacophony of emotions, memories and images that are ever present in our dreams.
