Composer’s note:

Several canons, as usual; several scrims laid over them: some general (atmospheric, constant), some of varying subjectivities, physicalities, modes of rhetoric: stuttering, breathing, scraping, whistling. “Plan and section”: i.e. a pale, colorless, wavering, stumbling surface, seen from above, or maybe from the side.
