Album Notes
Malcolm Galloway, composer, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist of progressive rock band Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate releases his second instrumental classical album. Most of the album is unashamedly minimalist, with Steve Reich a clear influence.

Dancing About Architecture - an accelerating minimalist rollercoaster, inspired by fractal art.

Swordfish - a slower piece, named after the Fairey Swordfish, a biplane that was the cornerstone of the British Fleet Air Arm in World War II. In tribute to Malcolm's grandfather, and all those who served in the Fleet Air Arm in the war.

Chemistry - a fast piece, symbolising particles colliding and transforming.

The Autumn Garden - this is the one piece on the album that isn't overtly minimalist and is perhaps reminiscent of the music of the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu. It starts with slow interlocking notes, producing gradually varying chords, then a more virtuosic section in which individual solo instruments explore a short piece of thematic material. It then returns to the slower material, before gradually resolving.

Spiral - the final piece is a relaxed and very gradual exploration of a limited range of melodic material. Instruments gradually come in and out of focus. Kaleidoscopic and hypnotic.
