The title (Spanish for ‘dry soil’) responds to an exploration of dryness as an opportunity to study the fragility of timbre from the particular and intimate experience of friction. In this composition, noise is especially approached as a dynamic entity from the materials that rub, brush or scrap the strings. Therefore, performers are invited to approach their instruments as dry soil territories in which they move to discover each textural identity. Cello and piano are explored as mirrored sources of sound, thus both instruments respond to each other as mutual extensions of their timbral conditions. Amplification works as a microscope: rather than just intensifying the sound, it is thought of as a magnifier of the inside of timbre, its structure and behaviour.
