Savery's ability to create musical diversity was manifested in a new way in Like in Everyday Life for six percussionists. This is much more than everyday music - it is a work in four movements with world music associations with several cultures. In a richly varied development pentatonic melodies, oriental timbres and gamelan-like music meet singing Caribbean oil drums, ticking sandpaper rhythms and the sliding pitches of the roto drums. Rhythmic drive alternates with articulated silence.
