The idea for the musical and visual implementation of the picture clowning is based on structural layers of the elements and the overall structure, which is also divided into four areas in terms of color.

The multi-part nature of the picture is further thought of in a real breakdown in the video, which only shows the whole picture after processing the four colored spaces.

The musical material is consistently derived from the formal sections of the video so that an inner unity is created in the interplay with the visual events. The shot lengths of the video are projected onto the pitches in the range from C to c ““ and, in a second projection, onto the notes C to f sharp ‘and thus result in two melodic lines. If the tones are sorted into a scale, chords can be formed from neighboring tones.

The chords assigned to the various choir ensembles always carry the entirety of the picture in the background, while the small-scale moving elements are realized by the wonderful organ sounds of the Organteq (physical modeling of the organ pipes; Modartt S.A.S., France).

Some compositional techniques of the fugue (transposition, crab walk, augmentation, diminution, mirroring) are used for the melody voices. The overall musical structure reflects the movements of the layers and penetration of the four main fields until the entire picture appears.
