The third movement begins in the early morning hours of April 18th, 1906. As the city sleeps the fault line rips and the Earth begins to tear apart. Devastation and destruction ensue as the city turns to chaos caused by the tremors and aftershocks of the earthquake. An odd-metered march develops that signifies the soldiers marching in to take control of the city as it burns in the aftermath of the quake.
