This arrangement of Rave-Elation was commissioned by Musiktheater im Revier. The first performance was given by Ballett Schindowski, with the Neue Philharmonie Nordrhein- Westfalen conducted by Bernhard Stengel, in Gelsenkirchen, for their all-Hindson ballet Veitstanz, choreographed by Bernd Schindowski, on 24 January 2004. Rave-Elation was written for performance by the combined forces of Camerata Australia and Camerata Scotland. It uses aspects of popular music as a starting point, in particular that of the 'techno' music genre.
The piece is almost exclusively hedonistic in content, and this is deliberate. The main inspiration for the work comes from dance and 'rave' parties, especially the party-goers' single-minded indulgence in physical enjoyment.
