In forgive me for speaking in my own tongue (4 minutes and 12 seconds before entering melancholy), the artist is engaged in the act of meditating on her breathing; focusing on each inhale and exhale. The exercise stops once she is no longer able to focus on her breathing as anxieties pervade her thoughts.
