In a studio, three musicians dressed in black are facing their music stands.
On the left is Oliver sitting at his drumkit, his long brown hair tied back in a low ponytail.
In the centre is a bass clarinettist with black-rimmed spectacles and her long blonde hair falling in waves over her shoulders.
On the right is a bearded young man standing at a vibraphone, his brown hair also tied back. He's holding two mallets in each hand.
The bass clarinet begins the piece in a slow, ponderous way, with the vibraphone soon joining in. Oliver sits waiting at his drumkit.
When the vibraphone picks up the pace in a syncopated rhythm, Oliver begins to drum along gently while the clarinet carries the melody.
Oliver changes drumsticks for the next passage, and he taps the cymbals while drumming.
In the passages without drumming, Oliver holds the cymbals to stop the reverberation.
The musicians' hands flit rapidly across the drums, the keys and the keyboard as they play the faster passages between the slow movements.
In a quiet interlude near the middle of the recital, Oliver stops drumming and turns a page of his sheet music. The vibraphone player and clarinettist play slowly and deliberately.
When Oliver joins in again it's with gentle taps on a cymbal, which he steadies with his free hand. He also taps a bowl of beaten metal on his right - like a timpani with no skin - then puts his sticks down and picks up a bow, which he slides over the rim of the metal bowl.
The vibraphone player is also bowing the edge of his keyboard, and Oliver moves his bow across to the left to use it on a cymbal.
The clarinettist pushes short breaths into her instrument to make it squeak.
Oliver and the vibraphone player put their bows aside and return to their sticks and mallets, then Oliver uses only his fingers on the cymbals, tapping them with his nails and rattling them together.
He uses the brushes next, on both the cymbals and the snare drum.
The clarinettist closes her eyes as she picks up the ponderous melody again.
In the last third of the recital, the musicians slowly increase their pace and volume, then ease off again towards the end.
They all gently play a final note or beat, then lower their drumsticks, mallets and clarinet. They share a smile.
Fade to black.
