    Life is a drama without a plot. This instrumental piece describes in miniature the hours, days, months and years of life. I have attempted to condense and study a fragment of the complications of human psychology in this piece of only seven minutes. This is the little tiny tale of a man or a woman. It was first performed in April, 1982 at a concert sponsored by NHK (the Japanese Broadcasting System) entitled, Modern Music.
