The piece tries to achieve two things. First, it is an attempt at intricately overlapping several "chorals" in the framework of New Music as a language or system of thought. While some of these "chorals" are closer to actual choral writing and others share only some very general characteristics of the choral as it is known, the materials thus chosen and generated all share their spiritual descendance or legacy with Schubert's use of choral melodies and transfer into different and extraneous contexts. Second, the piece applies a cut-out type of compositional technique (also, arguably, with some connection to some of Schubert's work), aiming to convey the experience of working on a piece, having various kinds of ideas in just your own head, and facing the need to process and choose wisely.
In between these two traits of the piece, its actuality, namely, the strange and open field of interconnectivity between various semantic, aesthetic and formal qualities is enabled to emerge, I hope.
