This work was written in 2003, commissioned by the Colectivo de Compositores de Alcoi in honor of my 60th birthday. It was premiered that same year and performed in various cities. 

We are constantly influenced by the world in which we live, and it is difficult to separate ourselves from those influences. Throughout the composition of this work there were several important factors that influenced me: firstly, the unjustified and horrible Irak war in 2003, with all of its contradictions and terrible results; secondly, the sculpture of Ekur, leader of the farmers of Uruk, 3000 B.C. This example of Sumerian art, which began a new period of artistic creativity and achievement, was found in Tell Obeid very near modern Bagdad. Now it is in the British Museum in London. 

The confluence of these two events, separated in time by 5000 years but united by geographic proximity, motivated the composition of this work. And, at the same time, led me to utilize totally contrasting emotions which affected the form of the work in order to achieve its own individualistic musical dialogue.
