Use vibrato for much of the piece.
Begin by playing your indicated pitch for roughly 4–8 seconds.
For following pitches, alternate between a consonant and a dissonant pitch.
Use accented attacks sparingly.
Durations are up to individual discretion, but should rarely (but sometimes) be shorter than 1 second.
Rests between notes should be from 1/2–1x as long as the previous note’s duration.
Some notes should lean.
Some notes should be played straight.
Roughly 2 out of 5 pitches should fall.
Individual dynamics may vary.
Allow the collective dynamics to range from mp–ff.
