"After learning that this is considered to be an old name for island of Tenerife, I studied all avaiable online resources about the Canary Islands and their geological hisotry.  In addition, I also read interesting "myths" which inspired my compositional process.  Last but not least, the name itself, "tak-na-ra", servied as a rhythmic motif for the second part of the piece.  The music has a descriptive character, especially the first (slow) movement.  After the thundering opener, I wanted to evoke calm and deep ocean atmospheres by using low, marimba sounds with ocean-drum, contrasted by metal and glass instruments.  Into this "soundscape", I have built-in sounds of the Canaries and also undersea volcano eruptions.  The final movement is based on a simple rhythmical motif of only three notes." -Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic
