Le forchette di tempo sono uniche per i due interpreti/improvvisatori. Ogni forchetta di tempo deve sempre essere intesa come duo. I tempi tra le forchette sono intesi come solo.
Questi tempi/spazi in solo non devono essere concordati prima ma raggiunti durante l’improvvisazione attraverso l’ascolto e l’immersione nel paesaggio sonoro nella durata complessiva di 22:27 e 18:46. Ci deve essere una pausa di almeno 5 secondi tra la prima e la seconda parte. Nella prima parte le forchette di tempo tra parentesi sono a scelta, sempre come duo.
