Commentary Composer's explanation: "Two virtual domes, opposed each other reflect the projection of a beam of virtual particles emitted from a location in its center. The beam is reflected from one to the other dome. Each time it touches the surface of a dome, a sound happens. The domes are designed with slight different sizes. Each dome is also a map of sound events." See also MS 5523 with composer's further commentaries about the composing process, making a score and performance.
