Encuentros is part of the final project of my undergraduate studies in Universidad Nacional de Villa Maria (Córdoba, Argentina). The music is about dialogue and the different possibilities of musical discourse as a way of narrative. I believe music is a communicative space where we can resist monologic interactions, it’s a way to put in tension our thoughts and challenge our differences. Encuentros tries to portray a musical language where opposite sides can dialogue and encounter each other. Enjoy!

Endless invention, endless experiment,
Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness…
Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?

T. S. Eliot
