Forty-four string players. All playing the same melody. Fragments into two. The new melody doubles the tempo but diminishes the dynamic. Then it splits into three. Then four. Then six. Then nine. Then thirteen. Then 22. Each time the new voice will be quicker than the previous one and will drag the dynamic down a notch. Until a point is arrived at where all 44 players are playing individually, and at the quietest dynamic of the piece, with the newest voice playing at the fastest rate. Total dissolution. Then, inevitably, everything begins to reassemble: the players start very gradually to play the same material as their neighbours, with decreasing speed but increasing volume. However, now they do not play unisono but in harmony, until a fortissimo tutti arrives, comprised, unlike the opening single line, of massive chords. A chorale.
