After finding out about compositions that incorporate the number Pi, this piece started as a semi-serious attempt to write my own variation.
Soon, I set a slightly different and more serious goal:
1. The piece should structurally follow the first seven digits of Pi
2. It should work as a coherent and musical piece regardless of this strict structure
This piece refused to take a conventional form. The first loose ideas were formed in a wooden cabin in the Alps. Over time, more and more parts & variations emerged and the final structure was established.
The title refers to both this structure and the importance of adjusting to setbacks and unforeseen developments.
