Snare Drum & Hi Hat


This piece is an exploration of rhythmic ratios. Some of these, like 2:3, are standard syncopations but others, such as 5:8, are quite unusual and even sound somewhat 'wrong'. This is the 'lemon' factor. The irony is that in order to capture this essence of 'wrong' they have to be played with clockwork precision, hence the title Clockwork Lemon. Of course, it is also a playful reference to the film, A Clockwork Orange, directed by the late Stanley Kubrick.
