"This is a trio for spoken voices. It is a composition with three themes which repeat themselves 'over and over until the end.' The themes are indicated by different colors and move from the voice to voice, so that each voice is playing with fragments of different themes. It is a musical composition for the voice, the eye and the ear."--Title page verso.
