Shrunken Symphony: What is the meaning of this?
A form dried up and shrivelled like thoseshrunken heads - therefore a corporate shrinkage?
Or does the title lead astray and we havehere an embryonic form:incomplete, unmatured, a seedling in need ofdevelopment - therefore not viable?
Possibly also the idea of a concentrated form,to be diluted to taste, pasteurised, homogenisedwithout artificial flavourings -therefore no danger to health?
In the end still the possibility of a symphonyin a nut shell, a toy symphony;intriguing craftsmanship, beguiling form -therefore not without depth?
And what is the meaning of this?
