Misc. Comments

Kin-toccata for keyboard (Piano, Harpsichord, Organ, Synthesizer) This piece is a Mayan or Mesoamerican calendar, Kin is the ancient measure of time projected to the future, Kin is the sun, is the day, Tzol-Kin is the account of the days or Mayan Ritual Calendar. This toccata is very near on this system of measurement: 260 measures and their multiples, 5200 years compacted, twenty times thirteen, 5 great cycles of 52 in three big movements: fast, slow, fast, as if we attended a enormous ball’s game of the mayan numbers. The use of typically Afro-rhythm cell is taken here like constructive and unifying material. The piano is consider like a gigantic resonador in which material, mainly percussive, excites the different fields or registers of the instrument, evoking therefore the idea of generating cosmic center of the cyclicity of the Tzol-Kin.
