ABOUT
THE
MUSIC

Broken Dance is based on a 2+3 rhythmic pattern that evolves

throughout the piece. It is meant to evoke the image of a solo

dancer performing unbalanced, off-kilter choreography. The piece

starts with an additive pattern that grows, shifts, and lurches until

even the performer seems to lose control over the piece, eventually

ending with a bold restatement of the initial theme.
