We move into the second part of this two-piece movement which features a tarana, a Hindustani classical vocal composition with nonsense syllables to highlight the voice as an instrument rather than a lyrical source. The voice playfully calls, “Dirana ohdata yadaya, dira naya, oh dha ta nanana, yadhata, tanana!” while the cello mimics this melody. The two instruments deviate and venture into different directions—staccato and puncturing at times or legato and sailing over the electronic sounds—but always return to the main tarana theme.
