There is real-life drama embedded in this composition, as the musicians have a choice of what to play. They are asked the question: “Is your country moving in a positive direction?“ Each string player chooses which line to follow, indicated by “Yes” or “No”.

From the sharp opening chords of "Yes" and "No" in succession defining the musicians’ preferences, right through to the final chords, we are on a journey through a changing musical and emotional landscape. Moments of tension, anger and frustration, expressed in the music, are balanced by hope and reconciliation.

Each string player chooses what line to follow - indicated as "Yes" or "No". If undecided, one can move from "Yes" to "No" or "No" to "Yes" at the beginning of any bar, so it reflects one's inner position. (example: 80%"Yes" and 20%"No" or 40%"Yes" and 60%"No").
