'Fundamental Manoeuvre' was created from an environmental recording of city trams in Göteborg Sweden. Part one (Embarkation) begins with a short melodic motif which gradually unfolds to reveal a larger and more complex sonic structure, or, more precisely, the original sonic material is reanimated into a recognisable source. Part two (Turning point), in contrast, makes use of pitch material of long duration that has been generated through granular manipulation techniques. Part three (Reversion) involves the return of the original melodic motif and goes through a series of modifications before the piece draws to a close.
