Reilly talks about the inspiration behind the project…
“The idea started one night while I was watching a Quentin Tarantino movie, and the thought occurred to write a piece of music where, much like the movie, the resolution of various parts wouldn’t necessarily happen immediately, they could happen somewhere later in the piece. And also, not everything in the music would be about ‘the plot’, it would go off at various tangents in between the main events. Again, just like the movie.
What started out as a single piece of music that lasted around 15 minutes, quickly expanded as more and more music was written. Eventually there were 4 distinct parts spread out over 45 minutes, with each part containing its own parts within, but the plan was to keep them all together as one continuous piece, rather than present them separately. This would not only be a challenge for the writer/performer, but also for the listener.
The end result is a 44.5 minute piece, sounding like a cross between a prog band and a film score. A unique musical experience.”
