Songs of Insurrection is based on seven songs of protest from various countries and eras. Rzewski takes these melodies as starting points for his own variations. He invites the pianist to conclude each movement with improvisation, which Kotcheff does on movements 1, 3, 4, 6, and 7. Kotcheff was featured in an interview by The New York Times discussing the album.
