I've made quite a number of pieces with choreographer Andre Gingras - over the years we've become very regular collaborators. In the meantime, the gigs have got bigger - this is possibly the biggest, with Nederlands Dans Theater, who I think are one of the best contemporary dance outfits in the world.

It was a big troupe of dancers, a big stage and a big audience (the premiere was at the Lucent Theater in Den Haag). I think both Andre and I felt the need to make things a little more 'mainstream' in comparison to some of the other work we've made. My brief for this section was very simple really - Andre simply wanted something 'big', extrovert, exciting... and in a very obvious FOUR (I found a constant challenge in working with so many dancers on such a big stage was simply ensuring they could hear the beat). I think he said it should sound like 'a great big party' or something...

The electric guitar at the end wasn't really my idea - it was more part of the theatre of the piece than part of the music (if you know what I mean). But Andre insisted, so I just went with it!
