The Blessing was commissioned by Sketch for the ballroom, which boasts 360 degree video projection, and was partly filmed in situ. Referencing the aesthetic of 1970s sci-fi and psychedelic films it follows the various levels or depths of trance  towards ecstasy as described by 16th century mystic St Teresa of Avila in her her autobiography. The score is written and recorded by Kenichi Iwasa and it describes in sound the levels and depths of ecstatic trance produced by a life altering drug overdose he experienced in 2007.
