Work introduction

I have been trying to create a non-linear work for a long time. It is not easy because we always perceive events in relation to time and space. It is like a pair of glasses that we look through to make sense of reality. I try to think of a SOUND, the “imaginary underlying sound of a piece”, which is rich, resonant, vibrant and displays different aspects of itself in turn. It is precisely this presentation that is typical of a linear form; this piece is a production which changes the perception of hearing and listening.

Scoria is written for a large symphony orchestra with three groups positioned around the room.
