About this composition:

Composed at the author studio using the voice and In memoriam Mercedes Cornu.

This work has been composed from the "destructuration", of four Latin-American’s popular songs: 2 from Argentina and 2 from Brazil, which were sung "a capella" by Mercedes Cornu. These songs have been break down in short and long sounds, syllables, breathings, coughs, etc.)

The composer only used techniques of tape cutting, mixing and manual shakes on these different vocal elements in order to keep the original timbre and qualiy of Cornu’s voice.
