Written for Gavin Saunders, who planned to spend some months on the island of Lifou (French Caledonia) exchanging his music with that of his hosts. Farquhar's idea was to provide an opportunity for the Lifouans to collaborate in the piece by providing a rhythmic background (clapping), and then taking over the piece to a rousing climax at the end.
