A musical-philosophical poem

This piece of music is about the psy-chogram of a modern person who is affect-ed by the feeling of always experiencing the eternal return of the same thing in a hamster wheel. Despite narrowness and repetition, it also has its good points: relia-bility and predictability, safety and happy moments, but also the strength to stay  in the hamster wheel . In return you receive reward for possession and power. Musical-ly, this is expressed with irregularly ac-cented but energetic eighth notes as a drive. The four-bar periodic appears symmetrical, but is broken asymmetrically in its 3-1 con-stellation, which later changes into a three-bar periodic.
But people always want more and thus feel a convergence of a developing becoming and being. However, the tasks of life – pre-sented in the form of additional and con-stantly changing topic and rhythm com-plexes – result in an overload. This causes stress, which increases to the point of col-lapse. The hamster wheel becomes unbal-anced, an impending heart attack is ignored, and it quickly bursts. The result: chaos, floating between life and death, extreme pain. Soon, however, recovery slowly sets in and with it hope for new harmony. A subsequent chorale and prayer express grat-itude. A  Zwiefacher1 shows, not without irony, the futile and ultimately pointless attempt to achieve a new simplicity. Inevi-tably it goes back to the apparently mean-ingful element of life, the hamster wheel, which now spins even faster and seals fate.
