This was was written in collaboration with GCSE students from Deptford Green secondary school. After teaching them about minimalism – specifically the music of Steve Reich and Terry Reily – I worked with students to help them compose their own melodies. I then used these melodies as the basis for Punch, showing the students how their melodies could be structured in the minimalist style.
