Moto Perpetuo (2006) – c. 6′

Composer Notes

Moto Perpetuo

Moto Perpetuo – perpetual motion – motion that, once started, will go on for ever unless stopped by other forces or worn out. The music ebbs and flows around a lively speed of MM120 (i.e. 2 beats per second). It fluctuates only slightly between MM138 (2.3 beats per second) and MM104 (1.7 beats per second).
