Mallets dominate most of the piece. In the 4th movement, there is a timpani solo with accompaniment. An early work of keyboard instruments utilized in percussion ensemble. Though often categorized as an experimentalist, his works are fundamentally exotic. Repetition replaced development or variation and an uninterrupted atmosphere was created through the absence of climaxes. He employs an extremely limited number of standard percussion instruments. Melodic materials and modal nature are present throughout the greater part of the work via the mellow resonant tones of the marimba. Various combinations of ringing and short sounds produced by both pitched and non-pitched instruments are basic to the sound.
