About this composition:

This composition shares the characteristic of most of my pieces written after 1990. Its symmetrical mirror-like structures, which develops backwards to finally reach the point of departure is also related to certain specific visual symbols, which also convey a higher conceptual meaning. In this particular composition, the sound structure suggests the development of a storm approaching a quiet water spot. The metaphor's overtones would also trigger in our minds the idea of an abstract and undetermined dramatic situation at a deeper conceptual level.
