This piece is concerned with striving and endeavour, the sheer effort which goes into life and the resulting stresses, strains and distortions which accumuIate. That pent-up feeling, a body under torsion, things breaking down or struggling to break out, the repeated going over and over the same actions. It last twelve minutes believe it or not.

Score and parts included.
