about

This album is sort-of an homage to Elgar's Enigma variations. Elgar took a basic theme and weaved it around impressions of his friends - indicated by their initials. As I don't really have that many friends (certainly not enough for an album) I decided to do my cats instead. Well, ex-cats - no living cats have been portrayed here. Unlike Elgar I haven't given you the theme on its own, that's partly laziness on my part and possibly an admission that it wasn't that interesting until I started mucking about with it and adding other things around it.

The cats are not arranged in chronological order and the names are given as initials purely as an affect on my part, following Elgar’s example. They are arranged girl/boy/girl/boy - as if that helps anyone - and you may recognise "J.M.".

Oh, and none of them were called Felix...
