for single instruments


a repetition of actions

in sections of the same

stopping and then starting again

with something different

producing different results

with the consistent quality

of requiring a great degree of tension

which quickly produces fatigue

and with it the impossibility                         of going on

after which it starts up again

and will continue in this way

as long as will allows
