This work was a commission from Finnair in 2008 and performed by Ensemble ∞Playce on August 15, 2013 in a world premiere at the Moscow International Performing Arts Center.
"Huge Cinemas retains a sense of beatific optimism throughout. a magical environment is created: half unprocessed, half electricity. The work evokes a grimy, quinine tinted special category of cytoplasmic coma. The strings mimic a dark cloud pressed beyond the bliss, reflecting an age of other dimensions, arctic paradises with the burden of mutually assured destruction ever lifted."
- Clive Bell
