Work introduction

This music deals with an entire world, miniaturised into less than three minutes. It begins with a tremolo which becomes faster and faster, stormier, and ever more extreme in its dynamics, expanding the sonic scope – until the piece makes its farewell, quiet and spent, with a few short chords.
