In the music for Kata, dedicated to the Esbjerg Ensemble, Olsen was concerned from the outset to avoid all verbal reference, and to apply his title retrospectively in relation to its abstract qualities. If the music suggested the name, then this Greek prefix was an inspired choice, denoting depth and descent in many cognates, as well as drills in computer programming and, as an oriental homophone, a strict routine in martial arts. It also relates to the Victorian mathematician Charles Howard Hinton, whose theories of four dimensions, involving the concept of Ana/Kata, Olsen found no less apposite to aspects of his music than these other associations.
