It’s difficult to know what to say about this piece. It will probably always be an aberration when considered as part of my larger body of works. My challenge when writing this piece was to incorporate two different dance styles, and I immediately decided it was time to face the disco music of my childhood. Yes, I had the Bee Gees on LP when I was a kid.

…and ABBA…but I left them out of this piece.

Obviously, this is meant to be fun. There are direct (if not always obvious) quotations to the following songs:
              Anita Ward’s “Ring My Bell”
              “Night Fever” by the Bee Gees
              Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” (Just had to be included)
              Lipps Inc’s “Funktown”
              and “Boogie Nights” from Heatwave
The ancient dance form known as the pavane is, weirdly enough, the perfect pairing with the disco…in that their rhythmic structures easily go together, allowing me to spread the disco material around throughout the piece. In fact, the references to “I Will Survive” are in the slower pavane section, not the disco.

The piece is basic A-B-A form (Disco-Pavane-Disco) with a fadeout ending…because in all my research I don’t remember finding a single disco piece that didn’t have a fadeout ending. It just wasn’t done. Please have some fun listening to this piece, because I had a great time writing it. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever written.
