A solo piece based around slight manipulation of phrases, treating recorded music as a landmark instead of a stool, and the idea of hesitation. The only solid event is the recorded music. The dance's timing is only up to the dancer. He must complete all phrase ideas and tasks before the music ends. This music is used as a landmark, not a stool.
