Notes

  • Program notes: 

    ... Methusalah, the mimesis (variazioni for Symphonic band) (2013-2014)
    Written on commission requested by the Orquesta Sinfónica de la Universidad de La Serena, its title refers
    to everything that, in the mind of the composer, turns out to be archaic, abiding and indeed, dead at this
    point of history, exactly the way music subsisted before in the mimesis – even as metaphor of sound –
    rather than the experience of that which is exhibited.
