While music can only express music, it is true that it gives us the ability to sublimate our deepest feelings such as pain for love or the emptiness of human existence. For the composition of the piece, I had a conceptual axis: the story “The defective automaton” by Trylks. Two distinctive aspects of this piece are the gestural properties of the sonic objects and its ludic stereo movement.
