The protagonist has a special communication with his surroundings - he communicates with objects in his kitchen by drumming on them. Otherwise, he hardly communicates with his surroundings, although his job - as a sales manager - consists of communication. He has divided his life: work and going out as an inner emotionless command and drumming as an expression of lonely primal freedom. I wanted to show how these two phases constantly alternate in his life, creating a rhythm through which the protagonist does not feel his life as alienation.
