"She writes differently - she has inimitable, unique style. You will often find sounds, not notes, fixed on the staff, and these sounds often reach far beyond any temperament system. Regardless of the fact that her notation is very complex and often difficult to read, Santa does not write music just for the sake of technical tricks; she doesn't try to fantasize or build up her pieces. She expresses an idea. She creates a painting. She composes the Sound of the World. This music is so ethereal, so mysterious - somewhere halfway between the singer's body and his soul. After the performance of "Saline", I was left with a feeling of incompleteness, of outspread wings; that's why I asked Santa to compose more works for the choir. Once you have entered the atmosphere of these sounds, you no longr want to leave."
