We generalize the topological approach to gestures, and culminate in the construction of a gesture bicategory, which enriches the classical Yoneda embedding and could be a valid candidate for the conjectured space X in the diamond conjecture ; see also Section 61.12. We discuss first applications thereof for topological groups, and then more concretely gestures in modulation processes in Beethoven’s Hammerklavier sonata. The latter offers a first concretization of answers to Lewin’s big question from  concerning characteristic gestures. This research is a first step towards a replacement of Fregean functional abstraction by gestural dynamics.
