This composition was created for the Berg Orchestra project entitled Marianum In an original fashion, it is intended for the Roman Catholic St. Salvator Church in Prague. The performance of the composition included an object by Magdalena Bartáková made from laminated paper (c. 6x11m) and suspended in the dome of the church. It was lit up by the setting sun and in the course of the evening it was also used as a projection screen for a shadow play. The Marianum project has been put together as a whole linked by discreet scenic elements inspired by the liturgy; therefore, putting it on in a diferent space and context requires the rethinking of all aspects.

The church is divided into 12 parts in which the musicians move according to the diagrams and instructions included in the score. All parts of the composition flow into the next without any interruption or pauses. The division into 12 parts can be understood as a structural aid to orientation.
