The album features works by Bronius Kutavičius, Justė Janulytė, Justina Repečkaitė, Antanas Jasenka, and Dominykas Digimas, as well as creative collaborations between Jūra Elena Šedytė and Simonas Nekrošius and Arturas Bumšteinas and Viktorija Damerell. The album was curated by Vítězslav Mikeš – a Czech musicologist, music writer, programmer, and an indefatigable promoter whose significant contribution to the dissemination of Lithuanian music in the Czech Republic was acknowledged with the Knight’s Cross of the Order for Merits to Lithuania in 2018.
 
In the curator’s own words, all works in this album demonstrate “the ritual quality of music” to a certain extent. “I endeavored to make an album that would feature composers across the age spectrum and works across a variety of genres including instrumental and vocal, orchestral and chamber, acoustic and electronic, improvised and folk music combined with contemporary writing. In other words, my intention was to show Lithuanian contemporary music as a diverse, vibrant, and stimulating scene, which it truly is.”
 
The package offers liner notes in English, a CD, and QR codes for those who prefer to listen to the music online.
