Václav Kuneš: Wind-up 
"Memories are what warm you up from the inside. But they're also what tear you apart."
 Haruki Murakami (Kafka on the Shore)

Wind-up intend to be a series of buildups of different lengths and kinds. Sometimes a real theme develops, escalates and crashes, one small element being left over that then starts to rise by itself... sometimes just a beginning or a single element that repeats without changing much and then disappears for no reason...
Individual memories that flash once and then are gone, only to maybe return later.
