In the initial part of any sound there occur a number of complex fluctuations in the harmonic spectrum, for instance, the moment a violinist puts the bow to the string or a trumpeter tongues a note. These are called onset transients, and as much non-periodic noise as pitched sounds.
This idea was the starting point for the work where notes often begin with a cluster in the piano part. The idea was not so much to represent or mimic this physical phenomenon, but rather to use it as an idea in itself.
