Video: Incidentals perform “Reversals”, Malfuf variations by Layne Redmond


This performance piece is based on Layne Redmond‘s six variations on the Middle Eastern rhythm Malfuf, for the upright playing position.

The arrangement was developed by the original Incidentals, over time, through team work. we fancied some movement while playing. So someone came with the idea of walking sun-wise to start with and anti sun-wise to finish. We decided to call on the four quarters to open and to call on them again to close.

The performance routine has turned out quite challenging, and we often giggle when we make mistakes and we giggle in rare cases when we do everything right. I guess we just like to giggle.
