The closing piece has a sense of finality about it, as the string part follows the composer’s personal biorhythm patterns from birth until the time of realization.
The three biorhythmic cycles, physical (22 days), emotional (22 days) and intellectual (31 days) are sketched onto all three staves, and the closest note that fits the key and harmony is used. This means the notes are rarely of conventional lengths but, courtesy of modern technology, the performance timings presented here are accurate to within a few microseconds, far better than its human counterparts.
Features of the composer’s life are shown by the introduction of additional instruments. The bowed double bass represent his hyperactive heartbeat, the tubular bells signify a new year, and meaningful events are assigned to the music box. Although the specifics of each event have never been discussed.
