7_7_7 (2016)

(17') For string quartet.

Written for a Workshop at DKDM (The Royal Danish Academy of Music) with Quatour Diotima.
The piece was premiered on Oct 28, 2016.

7_7_7 deals with the passing of time (of 7 years, 7 months and 7 days to be precise) and how the mind distorts memories as time passes by. The piece is inspired on the song “Jo diria cine” by Majorcan songwriter Joan Miquel Oliver.

Some meta-musical elements such as page turns or certain gestures from the performers are notated as part of the music, which also deals with intimacy and need for emotional expression, and the absurdity and self-consciousness of art as in something staged and not real.
