Moving On proceeds without a break for a little over eight minutes. The title seems valedictory, yet is also expressive of momentum. Both metre and tempo are fixed at the outset; yet it could be argued that this very regularity allows for flexibility. The main play, though, is between modal melody and chromatic harmony, each striving to make sense of the other. All we can do in music is find our bearings between the familiar and the unfamiliar.
