Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Alto en el desierto, despite being inspired to the heights of the desert of Atacama, is not a descriptive music work. It will undoubtedly possible to establish direct relations between the sonorous and geographical landscape, but the certain thing is that the acoustic image that i have tried to project, is conceived rather as one an abstraction and sonorous reflection on the heterogeneous and particular of the alluded landscapes. There isn't a narrative function here; the structure is organized in three atmospheres or micro movements which are connected and articulated in a single form. This is also something very important in my pursuit related to the perception, and to the communicativeness of the music. The work was commissioned by the Municipal Theatre of Santiago.
