About this composition:

There have been not one but three spontaneous generations: the emergence of Being out of Nothingness, the awakening of Life out of Being, and the birth of Man ...

... There was no question that Life on earth was an ephemeral episode but Being itself was also - an interlude between Nothingness and Nothingness.
Thomas Mann

Dreams of Being, like any other piece of music, is an illusion of a self-contained, ephemeral world; an interlude between silence and silence. But at the same time, it is also an intentional humorous/serious version of Being, of Life and of Humankind.
