The piece is a study in non-pitched loudness, and reflects a strong Afro-Caribbean influence, specifically influences of Congolese dance music and the Costa Rican version of the Calypso. The transitions are very reflective of transitions found in Congolese drumming, that of dynamic culmination followed by metric changes.
