In music, as in life, the off-beat provides variety, contrast, opposition to the heavier on-beat, giving the whole rhythmic life and bounce. In dance terms, the on-beat relates to the feet, the off-beat to the upper body. These eight pieces use these off-beat qualities in a variety of ways, ranging from sharp opposition to smoother integration.
