Here is your challenge!

This duet was written this morning between 2:00 am and 5:20 am. When I can’t go to sleep, I enjoy creating and solving puzzles. This is one of my puzzles written for you to solve.

Obviously, this is a tone row piece which uses the notes of the chromatic scale in a predetermined order for the purpose of obscuring any tonality or preset melodic expectation.

As with most of my puzzles, the more complex I can get them, the more enjoyment I get out of them “and now for your mission, if you choose to accept it”.

1. The title of the composition has several meanings (text taken from other sources) and it is your job to establish as many as you can and send your ideas to this post as a comment.

2. Your prize will be a free chart of my choosing. When sending your observations, please indicate what style and instrumentation you would like.

3. This contest is open to everyone and the person who can spot the most double meanings in the title, with the earliest time of submission will be the winner.

4. Be very clear in your explanations so that my life will be a little easier.
