I'm the woozy, mid-range Bb Lydian cluster that opens the film; played by two pianists silently depressing their keys with one hand, then strumming the strings of their pianos with the other, all while sustaining the pitches with the middle peddle. Muted violas (instructed to play without vibrato) prolong this effect, and two measures later, this is echoed in the lowest register by the same cluster, played by four harps (scraped with guitar plectrums), bass vibraphone, cellos and basses.
Overhanging this is a fragmented omen of the love theme articulated by the first and second violins, sounding artificial harmonics. All of this sets the stage for Uan Rasey's indelible trumpet solo, entering in at measure 8.
Incidentally, I also recur throughout the film as a leitmotif, a kind of musical mirage suggestive of heat and water.
