The Primate Horrific or Jumpity Jim Hath Little Intelligence

for chamber ensemble

The title refers to one in a series of short horror stories by Ronald Chetwynd-Hayes, titled The Elemental: And Other Stories. What struck me about this particular short tale, The Jumpity Jim, and ultimately what informed the piece itself, was its brevity, theatricality, violence and subtle humour.
