‘We’re all mad here’ was written for Xenia Pestova for the Centre Stage Spotlight of Female Composers event in Leeds at the White Cloth Gallery on 1st September 2015. The piece tries to capture the spirit of the quote from Lewis Caroll’s novel Alice in Wonderland. It is full of quirky rhythmic changes that never allow the piece to fully settle. The central section obsessively rotates around the same notes, with unexpected rhythmic alterations throwing the pattern off balance, before returning to the insanity of the beginning.
