Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Ametsak ('Dreams' in Basque), reflects my continuing interest in mental processes, and especially those which affect memory and its functioning. These processes, when translated into music, help me make the sound structure more malleable, and also to flexibilize its temporal disposition. The instumentation of this concentrated work has been chosen to enhance the use of extreme registers, in order to achieve a greater plasticity.

    Dreams show us a distorted reality, both allusive and elusive, where time escapes all logic. In my view, this alteration in the perception of time is closely linked to the nature of an art such as music, which conceptually has a fundamental purpose: to stop time or to pass beyond it.

    Ametsak was commissioned by the PluralEnsemble, with funds from the INAEM (National Institute of Performing Arts and Music).
