The following inscription, written by the composer, appears at the head of the score:Architecture of darkness: footfall and then warmth. Around us he draws the sheets. To both lover and beloved night extends a hand: she leads us, docent in the house of dreams, to the terra incognita of our sleep. We understand better in this place, unknown on our maps, where sight takes its leave and where objects recede: nightfall and touch and our comprehension (all at once) of skin and the dark and its shapes.
