The piece talks about the fleetingness of the present moment – the instant, expanded through a sizeable temporal zoom. Microscopic, while full of transformative power and wandering ideas, sometimes clear and logical, occasionally undefined as a daydream, and sometimes incompatible, chaotic, and changeable. The harmonic structure is built from a pitch stream made of 17 sonorities, constituting a hidden structure that manifests unchanged from start to the end of the workpiece, presented with different surfaces.
