The firework display on the way home
Miriam Young - 1999

This composition in two movements was inspired by firework night last year. The first movement, as it suggests, represents an actual display with a climax to the display in the middle of the movement. On the way home, the second movement was put together using both firework sounds and people and transport noises. I always remember lots of car and people leaving an organised display and I have tried to represent the atmosphere here.
