When The Mood Takes You provides a snapshot of different emotional states I sometimes find myself in. Anxiety is often fed by mixtures of fear, excitement and mystery, which are each explored throughout the movement. “Impatient” is a lighter, humorous mimicking of the hustle and bustle of everyday life and how we tend to be impatient when sometimes we are required to wait for things. The “Reflective” movement is the antithesis of this, as it is a depiction of taking a step back along with a deep breath, and looking inward for a moment to think introspectively on life.
