The sectional structure of Abyssal Creatures is slow-fast-slow, but all performed in one metrical stream transitioning by metric modulation. The work departs from its opening slow tempo ambiguous canon, transforming to faster and faster speeds, using tempo and subdivision modulation. This song features various rhythmical activities, not only metric modulation, but also polyrhythm and combination meters
