Through the narration of an unpredictable musical development between two contrasted sections, this piece focuses on the gradual transformation from thin and delicate textures which represent floating within the serenity of a galactic ambience to thick superimposed harmonies demonstrating earth’s increased gravity levels, musically represented as chord progressions or short phrases of mirrored melodic lines compulsively returning to the same pitch. Through constantly applying exact and broken mirroring Antithèse II describes a transition from introspection and calmness to obsession and anger and symbolizes the contrast between a journey of freedom close to God and a material life on earth.
