This piece is a fun exercise in counting notes and – just as importantly – counting rests. The players have to listen carefully, and never stop counting the beat. The notes are very simple, based on the D Major Scale and Arpeggio, and the piece begins with the feel of a cannon, until all the parts “catch up” with each other. The middle section works on bow retakes and the use of free arm movement.
