In this music, I wanted to combine two different materials. One is lyrical, the other is violent. As I composed, third material appeared unexpectedly. It reminds me of the novel “Tour of the Black Clock” written by Steve Erickson, because two stories connect in third story in this book. Then, I borrow the title form it.
