This theme serves as the background music for the iPhone/iPod game TileTouch, expressed through a compositionally minimalist approach and limited solely to the use of a string section.

As the theme is intended to play repeatedly, it is important the end of the piece be sympathetic enough to the beginning of the piece so as not to be distractingly jarring when begun again. The ostinato pattern in the violas serves this purpose in part while undergoing a subtle modulation, variation and syncopation set against the development of the other voices.
