Casey has demonstrated a high level of competence in organising musical ideas and a thorough understanding of musical structure. A variety of tuned and untuned instruments have been used and there is appropriate notation to represent pitch but no attempt to represent duration. The pentatonic scale has been used. An excerpt from a piano piece currently being learnt is also included. Although the initial section of the notation is confusing, the section entitled ‘structure’ is clearer.
