Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Astiro means slowly in Euskera, the native language of the Basque Country. With this simple idea the whole piece is defined. Slowly in relation to the development of sound, presentation and life of the different elements that coexist at different speeds within the same sonorous magma. Slowly regarding how different rhythmic and harmonic processes are developed. The perception of time, the limit between noise and sound so personal and never defined ... all these elements are the heart of the piece. The name does not imply, however, laxity. Astiro is a piece that leads to rapid movements after having content. These points create the form articulating a speech in which the burning of the material itself forms the structure.
