Misc. Comments

En Point, quise hacer una obra “autobiográfica” jugando con mi propio nombre de nacimiento. Para generar tanto alturas como ritmos tomé las letras de mi nombre de nacimiento y les otorgué una nota a cada letra generando una serie de alturas y para generar sus ritmos correspondientes a cada letra, utilicé el viejo sistema de comunicación telegráfica, el Sistema Morse, que consiste en puntos y rayas, los puntos son ritmos cortos y las rayas son ritmos largos. De este sencillo razonamiento, construí este trío para clarinete, violoncelo y piano en los primeros días de mi llegada a Paris en 1984.

In Point I wanted to make an "autobiographical" work, playing with my own birth name to generate rhythms and pitches. So I took the letters of my birth name and gives them a note to each letter, generating a series of pitches. To generate rhythms for each letter I used the old system of telegraphic communication, the Morse system consisting in dots and dashes, points are shorter rhythms and dashes are long rhythms. Upon this simple reasoning I built this trio for clarinet, cello and piano in the early days of my arrival in Paris in 1984.
