ESTUPOR is a short piece for a small instrumental ensamble: string quartet and 2 singers.
“stupor: a state of near-unconsciousness or insensibility”
Within the piece, all sounds and technics derive from an intuitive approach to the sonority of the word “estupor” in Spanish.
This piece is part of a personal approach and research of the relationship between text and music: previous works of my own authorship have worked this relationship in different formats: songs, symphonic poems, music theatre, musicalised poems. This was the first attempt to get into the sonority it self of the word-language rather than continue with the “storytelling” style.
ESTUPOR was premiered in the International Festival of Contemporary Music of Chile on 2018
