Stargazing is a set of three miniatures written for the Edinburgh String Quartet.
Gnostic Sky (c. 5') evokes a mystical, musical contemplation of the heavens, with echoes of Sufi chant, Gnostic glossolalia and vocal harmonies.
Radioastronomy (c. 2'45") is based on a precise transcription of rhythms of distant pulsars observed through a radiotelescope.
Little Star (c. 2'40") is dedicated to an NGO of the same name that orks on therapeutic programmes for children in Chechnaya and Ingushetia.
