This piece is inspired by Gaudí´s masterpiece Sagrada Família (Holy Family) Church in Barcelona. The shapes of the phrases mirror and imitate each other as Gaudí´s architecture playfully and also powerfully interacts with the shapes within and without the structure of the church. The instruments blend and also are set apart to create many colors. It ends suddenly because the actual church building which began construction in 1882 is still unfinished.
