    • Music Analysis-Rhythm- Entire piece is in 3/8 time. The A and B sections of the piece consist of sixteenth notes. The sixteenth notes offer a spiraling quality to the melody. These sections are contrasted by the C, D and Transition sections: C : slower moving. 1st T : elaborates on C section. Increases the speed and enhances the spinning quality of the A and B sections. D : brings an immense contrast to all other sections by maintaining the sixteenth note drive in the bass while slowing down the rhythmic values. 2nd T : brings the listener back to spiraling feeling, this time using sixteenth note triplets.
