"The 16 beat cycle starts and ends and starts and ends, creating a repetitive circularity; the melody has to accommodate itself within its scaffolding; it has to negotiate with the parameters to find a happy balance between freedom and responsibility, rights and duties, exhilaration and restraint." - Namita Devidayal in 'The Music Room: a memoir'
