This piece attempt to depict an atmosphere that may reflect the final moments experienced by the victims of notorious New York Mafia hit man Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski (1935-2006). The tools of his trade establish a texture in this work that is then mirrored and juxtaposed by more traditional musical instruments. Excerpts of Kuklinski's signature, taken at the time of his imprisonment, are used as notation in some parts of the score.
