"interiority" is a term that expresses the capacity for architectural, filmic, literary, and musical spaces to "rule out the exterior." Repetitive music has the capacity to greatly achieve this phenomenon because it places the onus of perception on the interior states of the listener. This piece is a shorter attempt at inducing a musical experience that rises out of subtle shifts in repetitive material.
