"Olga Polka" is dedicated to both Willis's grandma Olga, and Satie's sister Olga. Willis states, "There is a time when there is nothing left to do but dance, whether you are happy or sad. The middle section of this composition has the melody at 400% slower, making what was a happy melody seemingly sad and haunting. This piece really revisits my own personal musical roots. One day I realized that the absence of words makes instrumental music much closer to dance than I had considered with vocal music."
