About this composition:

The work is intended to represent the conceptual trace of a line in space. It consists of a tone cluster, which descends through four octaves. The instrumentalists follow the descending motion improvising steady rhythmic patterns. Since the instruments have limited ranges, they are used only when the notes lie within their registers. As a result, the ensemble timbre changes steadily throughout the composition.
