Gerard Cousins performs his original composition 'In the Grip' in the workshop of Beauchamp Classical Guitars.
About the piece:
"This piece is dedicated to the South African guitarist Derek Gripper.
"After touring with Derek and hearing him play his wonderfully poly-rhythmic music night after night I couldn't resist writing some simple studies with toyed with the idea of a two-note bass idea against a three-night accompaniment.
"At the time, I had also become very interested in the music of Philip Glass. The mood and structure of 'In the Grip' is influenced, in particular, by his solo piano pieces entitled 'metamorphosis.' "
