This work deals with the relationships among people, specifically their intuitive decision-making processes and the channels they are given to communicate them. If and when it doesn't sound like my other works it's only because I don't impose any specific language over the music. Except maybe for the beginning and the end, where the communication modalities given in the instructions are to restricted for many kinds of music to develop, any reference to a specific genre depends on the backgrounds of the performers.
Abstract musical structures, acoustic perfection, or preferences for musical generes aren't of help here. Without some curiosity towards people and their behavior this work is unlikely to be of any interest.
