The theme of the piece is conflict – resolution, and is in the spirit of free improvisation, whereby the piece is made by musicians listening to, and co-operating with one another, (or not, as in the beginning of the piece!)
Each line/player has 6 pages which must be played in order 1 – 6. The player however can choose to play any music phrase on the page in any order. Phrases may be repeated or omitted. Any note or phrase that is not in the instrument’s range (or comfortable playing range) may be transposed up or down the octave. Tempo and dynamics are left to the player.
