03:40: Losses. The flower begins to fade. Its structure weakens, it begins to lose external elements. This is the first symptom of its decline. Glissandi (falls) and rhythmical rebounds.
03:58: The thirteen circles. The afternoon progresses and with it the Solar Flower gradually loses strength, intensity and size, until it is reduced to the thirteen circles that make up its central structure. Brass instruments begin to take on a more central role.
03:59: White petals. With a lighter structure, the circles move in coordination in independent groups, in turn fading and losing their blinding force. The great Solar Flower decomposes into small flowers that turn, showing their newly acquired white petals. Rhythms defined with the brass and percussion instruments.
04:29: Loss of circularity. The mass of colour continues to decrease. The thirteen circles gradually lose their circularity to become cut-out hexagons. Their presence is reduced to minimums. Sustained notes, to accompany this disappearance.
04:45: Black star. Darkness advances, daylight confirms its decline. The star formed by the central petals turns black and advances, stretching its arms. Only double reed instruments (oboes, English horn, fagot) off-key, with the appearance of Nepalese mourning.
04:56: Turning. The duel between light and shade commences. The black star turns, trying to occupy new spaces. The light pursues it, defending its space. Other instruments are added, with a counterpoint that increases the density.
05:04: Black stars and tactical movements. It is a lost battle. Darkness grows in geometric progression and invades everything. Light, weakened now, gives in to its adversary. The density and the tempo continue to increase.
05:18: Triumph of darkness. Total darkness, after a blinding light, makes way for a cosmic vision. Everything falls stridently towards bass sounds.
