Samoa (2016) is a fixed media acousmatic piece that was created with sound materials derived from bells, Tibetans bowls, gongs, and scratches of cello. This work is based on different types of impulse responses, resonance transformations, the counterpoint between granular materials and reliefs within dense sound atmospheres, loaded with hidden gestures that are developed and recycled.
