Premiered the 18th of May of 2016 by Csma’s Chamber Choir – Elena Ruiz Ortega, conducting – Bernardo Pérez, electronics – CSMA, Eduardo del Pueyo Concert hall (Graduation Concert).
This piece is a revisitation of my work “Aún dormimos. Diferencias sobre pasado y presente”, written in 2015. In this work there’s a dialog between both pieces, between the recorded and the live choir.

In this work we play between the ideas of figurative and abstractedness in human perception. This duality is represented in the visual medium as in the sound medium, reproducing images and sounds that can be recognisable or abstract to us. ¿Is it useful to try to understand the meaning of what is abstract?
¿Is it possible not to recognise what is figurative?
In 2014 Helena Cánovas Parés (composer), Alba Font Villar (audio-visual designer) and Martí Llavina Costa (graduated in media and communication) founded VLA Colletive to create together works where image converges with sound. In each piece, these three artists work simultaneously in collaboration in order to develop all the possibilities and combinations that image and sound can offer.
