About this composition:

Sin Los Cuatro, for tape, was composed using a Composers' Desktop Project (CDP) computer workstation. Most of its material consists of two main sources - a recording of ice cubes falling into a glass of water and a blow-torch - which were manipulated and processed in order to create diverse textures as well as gestural material.
