| Comment: ||Again a conceptual piece of music. The title was originally "The unanimated word / 666" which tries to give the listener the wrong associations. Actually I put music to page 666 of the swedish phonebook (Stockholm A-J).
The names in the phonebook gave the repetitive structure and then there is a melos which the strings play usually in unison.
Another interesting thing is that the second movement consists of exactly the same music that is in the first movement - but is played many times slower and a couple of octaves higher.
