“This journey leads through various landscapes, but the reflection of the (imagined) spectator remains at the same train window: When in the early evening, the lights go out slowly, the landscape fades away as well, and the window transforms into a mirror in which the traveler can only see his own face. In the end, music accompanies language on its way towards silence, to “the sunken moaning muteness of fish” (Hugo Ball)
