From the deviser's notes:

Devised in Ithaca, New York, USA in September, 1992 and modified in June 1997. Kristin is my wife. This was the first dance I ever wrote.

Note that the preferred recording (Ms Gillian McMullen Of Cambridge) is played four times through although this is a three couple set dance.
