Both pieces are part of Oh, you song, [...] head for the bright sun, a series of works dealing with the intersecting histories of fireworks and gunpowder, warfare, pipe organs, church music and representation. Their construction is based on the design of traditional spherical fireworks. All titles of the project are excerpts of lyrics from various versions of the Soviet Estrada song Katyusha, released in 1939.
