Sul progetto che presto farà rivivere in digitale l'opera a quasi trent'anni dalla sua prima stesura ha detto di recente Sally Potter: "Oh Moscow is grounded in the notion that unless we understand our history we’re bound to repeat it. Do we now have the means using digital technology to link music that animates one part of our brain with knowledge that animates another? Can digital layering allow each individual to become an information archaeologist, digging deep to collect essential information from the past to the make the links between the people in the 20th century who stumbled across Europe in their hundreds of thousands, driven from their homes by war and persecution, with those we are now watching every day on our smart phones and TVs?"
