Usually, counterpoint piece needs at least two acoustic instruments without some exception. In this piece, the composer tried to create a contrapuntal structure with solo woodwind instrument using electronic devices. With the recorded video, the contrapuntal structure can be easily recognized and heard, and through randomized playback speed of the recorded video and audio in the middle section, the audience can enjoy different musical expression with the unexpected, and chaotic contrapuntal texture.
