I can see “string” (that loose end that causes everything to unravel or at least was holding the fabric together under stress only now the weave has the strength of piss-soaked tissue paper) or “string” (the pull-string that sets off the mechanical reaction of recording and movement and music until the string retracts back and it all comes to a halt, abruptly and unapologetically). Either could apply.
