“They are not talking about us” was the biggest piece I composed during my Composition studies. It is based on texts by the Spanish philosopher Emilio Lledó which I took and reorder to create a new structure. The piece is about a land which had a dark past and now has no hope, despite the times might be better. In this work the use of the voice in the instrumental ensemble was an important topic, such as the aim of creating theatrical geastures.

“Aún dormimos. Diferencias sobre pasado y presente” was the first work in which I explored and included theatrical geastures. The piece is about the character of ‘don Quijote’, as it was a commission to celebrate the 200 anniversary of Cervantes’ second book.
