This piece has a very interesting structure. The initial eight bar melody uses a 6/8 bell rhythm through most of the melody. The second eight bars repeats this identical melody with an upward modulation. If you don't pay attention, you may not notice that everything is playing in a new key. At bar 16, the tune abruptly marches into 4/4, a monstrous rhythmic modulation. Similar melodic and harmonic ideas happen here, giving the idea of the same life lived in a new more active mode. Composed spring of 1996.
