“…I'm looking for urban music with a focus on Latin America, I work with the use of interruption or with the contrast between different musicals materials, but not from a folkloric origin. I also use the manipulation of the sound in different ways: either imagining it or testing the sound on a musical instrument. Urban sounds and noises are my source of inspiration, (such as the sound saturation of vehicles, or the use of rhythms derived from these sounds), the sharp contrasts between sound and silence; and on the other hand, an understanding of time from being in the solitude of the plains or the highlands...”
