The piece was written in collaboration with Andrzej Nowicki, a NZSM student who dances with a Polish folk group in Wellington. The clarinet carries the dance tunes in both movements, with a second clarinet and a baritone saxophone joining in the second. The gamelan accompaniment moves between "slendro" and "pelog", suggesting a 'bent' version of western harmony.
