Ashley thought this piece "too literal" but audiences like it. Ashley was heavily influenced by John Cage who was very much against improvisation (until later in his life). This piece was not a literal response (initially) to the music and to a great extent was improvised (within parameters) each time it was performed. Over time, and many performances, it became a bit more defined. Kind of a new version of Death of A Salesman or Portrait of the Artist Killing Himself. Dyde performs in 1985. Obviously he liked the music.
