Piece begins with a 45-second percussion improvisation using primarily wood sounds (such as marimbas, claves, wood blocks, temple blocks, log drums) and also some metallic sounds (such as suspended cymbals and wind chimes). The pan part can also be played on vibes. Has unison rhythm of sixteenth notes, then bells and pan play same part. Pan (or vibes) solos with sixteenth note accompaniment.
