Hi-tech slidings

Free jazz in seven overlapping segue sections

1) low languid laborious quiet quirky trills
later trills are much wider

2) curtailed ascending scalic snippets
eventually accelerating
extending
looping and conglomerating.
always pianissimo with a late crescendo

3) running around high up in various pairs
don't go mad to start with

4) a loud low monotone [concert E or A ]
of considerable rhythmic interest

5) sporadic sounds of your favourite animals
otherwise pedal low G, D or E

6) pointilistic pianissimo staccatostratus
à la bouncing superball
as a prelude to rapid repeated descent
sempre pp

7) eventually arriving
proudly and triumphantly
at a delicate triad (concert D)
repeated diminuendo and crescendo
