Work Overview

Nock on Effect is named in honour of Sydney jazz pianist and composer Mike Nock. The main soloists are the drummer, who responds to the rhythmic patterns being set up by the winds and brass, trumpet and double bass.

Despite residing almost completely in C major, Nock on Effect's main challenge lies in the rhythmic subdivision of its meters. Dotted quarter and eighth notes give the impression of multi-meter in the first half of the piece.

From letter F onward, the prevailing 4/4 is divided into alternating bars of 3,3,2 and 2,3,3 eighth notes, respectively. The main melody of this section further subdivides these groups into 2, 3, or 4, giving a sense of rubato against the dominant rhythmic pulse.
