"I felt obliged to belong to the avant-garde - which at that time meant serialism or the alternative culture of Happenings - but I always had a somewhat uncomfortable feeling", the composer Balz Trumy said. "The reason is simple: I have no talent for that kind of music. Nonetheless, I naturally wanted to 'belong'. With the ideological line, it was a similar situation: in order to be taken seriously, you had to have a 'program', and here too I lacked any particular talent. I finally decided that my program consisted of the simple wish to write beautiful and coherent music, whatever that may mean." For Trumpy, composing represents the "possibility to transport something from other dimensions into our reality of time and space." This is made most clear in the longest work on this album, the "Oracula Sibyllae", which can be seen as both the point of departure and the goal of this collection. Balz Trumpy wrote the piece for the El Cimarron Ensemble, to whose members it is dedicated.
