Notes & Reviews:

"Scored for two percussionists, 'Extension of a Dream' pays tribute to Steven Biko, the political activist who was brutally beaten to death by South African police. The effective opening creates tension with a hushed heartbeat of bass drum notes, and some of the fragmentary percussion writing reflects something of African dance and exotic colour." - Lawrence A. Johnson, Gramophone
