Relationship between 3 men. Electronic sounds sound like morse code and then classical instruments start to subtly layer over 3 electronic sounds until predominant for reminder of duet. 3 overlapping white spotlights downstage. Overtime a white wash is added.

Second male and female duets. Sound A: fast pace score with a cello. It has much more of an uplifting mood. The score ends with a sustained long note to indicate the section has ended. Movement has a direct correlation with the music. Green light filling most of the stage.
Six duets. Lighting 6 white rectangles of light towards downstage. Strings such as violin and cello.
Third duet. There is a male solo and a duet. Metallic/Electrical sounds, phasing found sounds that sound like a train and a train whistle. This stops as the soloist exits. The cellos create an empathetic atmosphere. Electronic/Found sounds re-enter. Light is a harsh yellow wash.
Helping one and other. White lights above and from the wings.
