ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Presentation

This CD includes sixteen works that I composed between 1997 and 2008, of a total of approximately thirty works that complete my current catalogue. It is a very wide selection that considers several chamber configurations, music for solo instruments, mixed electroacoustic works and computer music. These pieces were premiered and recorded in different countries such as the United States, Germany, France or Chile. Many of them were especially composed for the participant performers in this CD, and in some cases in a very tight composer/performer collaboration, that has benefited me tremendously.

The title of this release, UniSono, comes directly from the idea of only one source, or several sources that somehow coincide and it adequately represents the gist or conducting thread of the works included in this release. One way or the other, all the works on this CD seek to explore and expand the sonic possibilities of one or more sources in order to generate new musical contexts for them, especially through the use of computer technology. The idea of presenting acoustic instruments under new musical and more complex contexts is something that has interested me since the beginning of my musical career. This interest me, not only from a musical perspective, but also from a global point of view, after observing how certain methods, objects and beliefs very rooted in our culture have been modified by computers and digital technology. Disc A contains works of a more acoustical character, while disc B has mixed works and computer or acousmatic music.
