"The Man Closing Up" is a through-composed, singular piece of music, divided into five sections. These five "songs" are intrinsically linked, through text, form, and motivic material. The texts are based on the improvisational poetry of Donald Justice. The dark and lonely imagery of the work informs the music, as well as the illustration of oceanic themes. The words and music become closely related, carefully intertwined through elements of form and text painting.

As for the actual composition, the majority of the music began as combinatorial 12-tone music, sometimes to remain true to it's serial genesis, sometimes to wander to other regions of atonality. Elements of free improvisation also find its way into the music, adding an element of abandon, and the unknown. With this album, "The Man Closing Up", EHNAHRE bring an altered, twisted vision of the poetry to a musical realization, a musical vision of a darkened heart in a world of indifference and delusion.
