Textures no4 Duration: 10:03

About The Piece Textures no4 Both the photo symmetric structure and its title Superposition of two opposite twisting light modes inspired the musical form: This is a palindrome for two harps, that is to say, that the initial score can be equally read from the beginning to the end or from the end to the beginning, with an axis of symmetry in the middle. Thereafter, I manipulated the sound material using a computer program that allowed me to express with sounds the chromatic concentric expansion of the photographed object.
