I was really inspired by the music performed and recorded by a New York based ensemble called yMusic. I decided to write for the same instrumentation with a bit of my own voice: flute, bass clarinet, trumpet, violin, viola and cello, with electronics. On top of the electronics, I wanted to give the conductor, a good friend of mine, Ismael Sandoval, the chance to have more control over the piece. The piece is written as a bunch of different loops, which the conductor has control over in terms of dynamics, entrances and cut offs.
