Performance and Composition
The Chase Dance by Apostolos Paraskevas
It is a fast dance work with an introduction that presents the basic tonal material. The introduction has no meter and acts as an evocation or well an...introduction. Most of my music material that time came from my Greek heritage as a listener and musician. Alternation of 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 9/8 meters increases the tension of the piece and the nerves of the performer as the end approaches. The piece ends almost abruptly as the result of a chase.
