Notes on this piece
A comet, from Greek komētēs ‘long-haired (star)’, is an icy, small Solar system body that, when passing close to the Sun, warms and begins to release gases, a process called outgassing or sublimation. “Kométes” is built following this chemical process, considering the gravitational unbound atmosphere surrounding its central nucleus where this nucleus is represented by an inner melodic line which guides all the transformations of the musical matter inside the piece, and the atmosphere by the musical processes on the surface. The central nucleus of the comet is one of the darkest objects of the Solar System, contrary to the collective imagination. Occasionally a comet can live an enormous and sudden explosion of gas and dust, what is called outburst and what is audible in the middle part of the piece where the material blows up and the nucleus is distinctly perceived, played by brass. The continuous deceleration and acceleration of the musical matter, structural principle of the entire piece, refers to the change of the comet’s speed, depending on its position inside its orbit. The coda of the piece is the death of the comet which, after having completed the process of sublimation, is not subjected anymore to any transformation, becoming an inert asteroid into the open space.
