    "sobre a areia o tempo poisa" / "over the sands time stands still" (2016)

    The title of the piece, "sobre a areia o tempo poisa" ("over the sands time stands still"), is taken from the poem "Fundo do Mar" (“Deep Sea”) by the Portuguese poet and writer Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen (1919-2004). As suggested in Sophia's poem, my musical material is also said to start from opposites that cohabit within the same space, where everything is as much divided as it is intertwined, as if it were a web. Thus, as in a dream, the events of the work succeed in a non-linear manner; and the time releases memories that were long forgotten.
