A composition for orchestra that explores the essence of life (arché, APXH). The ancient Greeks were searching this ultimate primordial substance. This composition is based on one single 12-tone theme, which is developed throughout the piece in a very organic way, as a representation of the generative forces of creation in the universe that Thales of Miletus described in his writings.
