The piece consists of four independent layers (solo oboe, piano, percussion, and remaining ensemble), each playing material derived from different sources (respectively: Korean traditional Court Music, Beethoven's final three piano sonatas, Mahlerian 'hammerstrokes', and Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons'). These sources retain much of their original rhythmic profile, but have been greatly altered in pitch.
