“The Statistician”

Ideas obviously stolen from James Scott Skinner and his composition “The Mathematician”…

Set just to confuse and irritate those addicted to Mr. Skinner’s "Mathematician"… The devil made me do it… 8-)

“The Statistician”

It’s not going to work - some sections of the B-part should be at least an octave higher to be convincing :-)

Always fiddlin’ with the figures… ;-) In this case the lowdown…

Similar to what lazyhounds says, at least half the B part needs to be in 3rd position or higher to count as a take off of the Math’.

Plenty of accidents in there though, I will give ya that.

Did you ever think there was a reason it went ‘against’ that whoop up to the high f’? And yes, there was madness and reason in catching every accidental possible… It’s both a pastiche and a satire… 8-)

But just for you two, here’s the missing alternative, the last 4 bars of the B-part, higher than Skinner, one step up to g’ ~
