Some rotational shenanigans with a pitch series' X/Y dot-graph
produce its retrogression at 180 degrees. Starting out with the
retrogression leads instead, of course, to the original. I have
applied this trick -- emphasizing its many intermediate shifts --
to two unrelated opening bars: first, from Arnold Schoenberg's
Klavierstuck, Opus 33a; secondly, from the French folksong
"Ah Vous dirai-je, Maman".
The result is named to merge the source titles (song in English).
While conceived for Flute/Guitar, the piece may be played by
any feasible instrument pair, or as a keyboard solo.
