This is a medley of orginal compositions by the ensemble's percussionist Jon Seligman. It begins with a selection called The Screed which features Seligman's solo on the Riq (an Egyptian frame drum that resembles a tamborine) before a unison Middle Eastern melody enters that constantly shifts meter/time. There is an open bass clarinet solo after the melody that then gives way to the second composition called Iptidan Ilahi and features a piano solo by Harry Appelman.
