I began to write four short piano pieces which were intended entirely seriously. I noticed that, as often with my music, they were in quite different styles from one another, and that each related to a different style of twentieth century music. I then added the titles of the separate pieces, and came up with the title of the whole piece. In doing so I have probably destroyed any possibility of the music being taken seriously.
