RadaRadaR is mainly based on Samuel Morse´s "Morse code" which in this composition is incorporated systematically. The five mores codes applied on this piece features the words: SATOR AREPO TENET OPERA ROTAS These words contributes the latin palindrome "Sator Square".

The first known appearance of this palindrome was found in the ruins of Pompeii buried in the ashes of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. What inspired me is its symmetrical idea in form of ability to be read in any order: top-to-bottom, bottom-to-top, left-to-right, and right-to-left, the significants of these words are the following:

The Great Sower holds in his hand all works: all works the Great Sower holds in his hand.
