œ Additional Notes Performers may use play in any octave on any instrument.

Dynamics should stay relatively static, changing only when the entire ensemble feels appropriate. The piece should not exceed a

medium-soft dynamic level. Performers are encouraged to fully explore the concept of gradual change as they perform this piece. At no point should there be dramatic change.
