Notes

  • Program notes: 

    'Liaga'
    Written for percussion, piano, string quartet, bass flute, bass clarinet and female voice.
    This piece is approximately 6 min. lenght.

    Liaga is the defragmentation and desolation of each consonant and vowel that make up a text from one of the many dialogues of a Mexican play. Maintaining the natural phonetics of Mexican Spanish and inspired by the double vowels of the Flemish language. This text transmits the following:

    'Dicen que la hija de Juán Guzmán de Aliaga tiene pactos con el diablo'1

    The harmony of the piece is based on the chord of Bulería of flamenco music and the exclusive interval of the piece is the tritone, which symbolizes the 'devil'. The intention and character of the piece is the expression of amazement when receiving such a news and make it known to those present.

    1 English translation:
    They say that the daughter of Juán Guzmán de Aliaga has pacts with the devil
