With its direction to play 'momentum & dynamics ad lib', lack of barlines, and repeated phrases, the score seeks to engage the performer with the emotional implications of their choices as they interact with each other and the performance space. The melody is simple yet lyrical, with an austere, potentially haunting yet humble quality to it.
