The composer wrote: "Sydney dance teacher Ian Murphy tells how the Argentinean tango began in the ghettos of Buenos Aires, with dance steps grouped in 5s and 7s which worked across the music's phrasing. However, when taken to Europe, extra dance steps were invented to fit into groups of 8s. I heard a modern tango, with its faster tempo so explores the grouping of 5 within this faster tempo". The piece employs voice leading, shifting harmonies and a long melody.
