The repeating gets annoying. Of course I am referring to the constant need to do the same things over and over, compulsively. The switch can’t be turned off. The ticking clock in the end refers to the forcer based on the tension of a spring. Winding it up once and it will keep going for days, obsessively. In our Western musical tradition we are used to specific patterns. This habituation makes that we have some expectations in what’s coming. I did my best to not meet those expectations.
