Fancy: a 17th century term generally describing a composition in which form 

is of secondary importance. Fancies 

were usually contrapuntal and in several
sections. (The Oxford Dictionary of Music)

 

Fancies (2009) served to reconcile previously unsettled material, based 

upon a scheme that condones disparity
between its constituent parts. In the period since its completion, and subsequent issue on cassette, Fancies
has come to represent an antithesis 

to what I originally termed ‘a work in parenthesis’. Forbearance (2011) was composed specifically to accompany Fancies, and can be considered its honorary sixth part. The work signals 

a shift in my attitude towards notions 

of compositional economy, formal concurrence and discordance, engagement and refrain — aspects of
Fancies that I have since come to admire.

 

Fancies was previously available on cassette in an edition of 50 copies 

(E101; 2010)
