Largo or Lento

by Old Bone Machine

A figure of a rider ascending against a background of blank music paper. A rider tapping out a slow and difficult rhythm. Bending to the sun and the will of the mountain. A tempo in largo or lento.

A 1914 sketch by Marcel Duchamp, titled avoir l’apprenti dans le soleil or to have the apprentice in the sun.
