The imagined situation in which the piece takes place, is of a picture being painted while the ink and the canvas are made of inappropriate materials. Thus, the paint cannot attach to the canvas and the streaks of paint drip down immediately. The resulting painting is a combination of the artist’s intentions and the "natural" effects of gravity. Here, gravity enters the abstract world of sounds and becomes the main driving force of the piece and overshadows the original compositional intentions.
