Olden Bellows, two tunes and a heterophony for clarinet and accordion is a dance-like cycle in three movements. The act of dancing itself is viewed here as a series of frozen film stills, where time may be compressed or extended, as required. The movements are the following: I Smonica (Vertisol), II Černozem (Chernozem), and III Podzol.
