I composed this music while walking along the streets of Manhattan, New York. Around me a multitude of sounds, colours and distractions of all sorts were getting my attention so strongly that I suddenly felt impelled to give voice to my sensations in music right on the spot. I wrote the score sitting on a bench in a park near Fifth Avenue. The premiere was performed by the composer at Trinity College of Music in London on 22nd November 1990.
