 Just as in the other pieces of the deconstruction series (of a whole, of a cluster, of a cycle, of an end, of a trill), the deconstruction of a musical object or structure becomes the discursive element of the piece. This particular piece is built from a montage of moments derived from a very slow deconstruction of a military roll over two snare drums, bringing into the foreground several elements already contained in the detail level of the roll: individual percussions of the roll heard as isolated elements, microvariations in timbre and dynamics and, in general, the interaction between all these isolated elements that create another hearing path of the original material.
