A year or so later, in 1996, Gavin was back, this time requiring some music for a short documentary film on the WestPac Rescue Helicopter. Again, he had a strong idea of the style of music he wanted. I wrote two pieces based around the same themes.

Bolero -  Gavin played me a soundtrack from a video game - mech warrior I think - and said that he'd like something like that. It sounded very much like Ravel's Bolero! Unashamedly influenced by ELP's "Abaddon's Bolero" from the Trilogy album, in this piece I tried to give Gavin music that he could chop apart and repeat various sections of in order to fit the film, which I had not seen at the time. Still haven't, in fact. I wonder if it was actually finished?

End Titles -  A more upbeat version of the same themes.
