The piece was inspired by a series of long distance telephone conversations over many months. These conversations would run the gamut of cheerful and harmonious to being on quite different tangents on some issues. The music thus contains the underlying ideas of call and response in the melodic fragments. Yet essentially, no matter how much effort and goodwill goes into some conversations, it was impossible to find a continuous point of connection.
