La torre

Chamber poem for piano.

Premiered in Münchendorf, Austria in June 2013.

I composed this chamber poem for piano solo based on my homonymous poem. The music arises from a kind of translation from the verbal poem, originally written in Spanish, to purly musical material. For the transmutation of the semantic content into the abstract sound-world of music I used a system, which I developed for the composition of this piece. This consists basically of a network of trans-parametric mappings, which is based on the binary system. The musical gestalt of the piece and the particular way of interpretation it requires, follow the lyric of the original poem.
