Originally premiered at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2013, further performance took place in Kings Place and Froome Festival 2014. The music for Anarchy in the Organism uses a rhythmic technique the composer is naming (somewhat erroneously…) Pulse Time Modulation (PTM) - the idea being that a repeating sound (a pulse) is subject to a constantly changing tempo creating a shifting accelerando/rallentando effect. It is most commonly used over a fixed pulse where the slow phased pulsing effects are most clearly heard. Where simultaneous multiple PTM’s take place, any definitive pulse becomes difficult to ascertain and quickly become perceptually complex and/or chaotic. ‘Spastic’ – a terminology taken from Conlon Nancarrow’s politically incorrect and rather offensive usage (even at the time Nancarrow adopted it…) in his Player Piano pieces. In simple terms it implies a rhythmic inaccuracy, or to be more pertinent - a rhythmic pattern that disturbs a regular consonant rhythm (a ‘limping’ rhythm…).",
