Abstract

This Folio of Compositions is the result of an intense musical search. A search that I do not believe to be finished yet and which probably never will be, as being a composer is a lifelong journey of exploration. There has been a clear development in my personal voice during the last 5 years, a development that is documented in the music of these 11 pieces. The folio includes solo pieces, several chamber works and an orchestral score. Through the composition of these works I have consolidated a style where polyphonic texture, which involves a strong use of polyrhythms and isorhythm, and progressive transformations in pitch and harmony, play an important role. This commentary is divided into two sections. The first part contains some information about all the compositions, outlining facts such as the date of composition, first performance and main features of the piece. In the second part I present details and examples of compositional techniques, focusing on three specific music elements: harmony and pitches, melody and rhythm. By composing this corpus of pieces I had the aim of looking further into the essence of music, into the process of communication and the beauty of art.
