Sixth composition in the series of chamber music pieces by the contemporary Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür.

Tüür uses in his work a broad spectrum of compositional techniques. He has been interested in Gregorian chant and minimalism, linear polyphony and microtonality, twelve-tone music and sound-field technique. To describe his attempt to contrast and combine musical opposites -- tonality versus atonality, regular repetitive rhythms versus irregular complex rhythms, tranquil meditativeness versus explosive theatrically -- the composer has used the term "metalanguage". The work "Architectonics VI" (1992) is one of the most representative examples of this method.
