MIM is a fanfare. It is made up of lots of simple musical layers, each instrument playing a simple musical line. The combination of these layers creates a complex and vibrant whole. MIM was composed especially for the opening of the Selwyn College Performing Arts Theatre on 22 April, 1999. MIM is dedicated to my daughter Xanthe – it was written in the last stage of her gestation and finished just days before she was born.
