If you can fill the unforgiving minuteRudyard Kipling, IF
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it
My original idea was to write a piece of music to be played in exactly 60 seconds – and I called it The Unrelenting Minute. But two things changed this – firstly I found that I couldn’t play the piece I’d written at the speed needed to reach my 60 second deadline; and then I realised that it was better when played quite a lot slower….
And this was confirmed when I played it to Elaine and she said it gave her the image of a Butterfly.
