Ahang is a computer term for the failure of a program to continue to respond tosignals, causing the operating system to freeze. Hangs occur in different ways,but this work depicts two common symptoms of the hang: "thrashing",the exhaustion of memory from rapidly exchanging data and "infiniteloop", where a sequence of instructions is in no condition to stop. Thework ends with the death knell to any operating system, a crash aptly named,Blue Screen of Death. Depicting failing machines, this is music marked byfrequent reboots, constant bleeps, bops, clicks, the occasional rudeinterruption, and makes use of ever-repeating musical figures to help depict aneternal state of stuck.
