Performed on the occasion of the exhibition 25 years of the Mudam Collection, Verstrijken by William Engelen (b. 1964, Weert, Netherlands) refers to a method for composing music that the artist and composer has used since 2005. The sound work is based on journals that the artist transcribed as a score for a solo instrument. It is conceived as a form of self-portraiture, where the musicians perform an episode from their personal history as music.

For this iteration the artist has worked with musician André Pons-Valdès from the Luxembourgish instrumental ensemble United Instruments of Lucilin, who kept a diary for seven days which was transformed by Engelen into a forty-four-minute violin solo score.
