The Myth of Orpheus and Euridice is a source of inspiration for musicians of all eras. Using the complex language of electroacoustic music is an approach that colors the emotions in its own unique way. The work is divided into three acts: the first part is the death of Eurydice from a snake bite and the mourning of Orpheus who lost his beloved. The second part is the descent of Orpheus to Hades to seek her. The last part is the return to the "upper world" and the command that Orpheus disobeyed. As a result he lost his lover forever. The regeneration of sounds has been created electronically in three separate parts that are described above as three acts.
