Bestiario (“Bestiary”) is a collection of pieces in which the performers are asked to embody an imaginary animal through sound. In a way, this animal participates in the composition process as it gradually reveals itself in its sonic qualities which help dictate the work’s discourse (form, techniques, contrasts, gestures, etc.) This means that this imaginary animal has agency in the work, which leads me to make decisions that I would not have otherwise made. Along with other collections of pieces (such as Dialectos de Árbol or "Tree Dialects"), this Bestiario is one of my attempts to remove the human—as a concept—from the center of attention and to ‘de-humanize’ my ear in order to be able to better listen to those types of others who rarely are considered as equal subjects.

El ciclo Bestiario (al cual pertenece esta obra), es un conjunto de piezas cuya premisa inicial es que los intérpretes “corporalicen” a un animal imaginario a través de sonido. Este animal—de alguna manera—participa en la composición de la obra ya que, una vez encontradas sus cualidades sonoras, ayuda a dictar el discurso de la obra (forma, técnicas, contrastes, gestos, etc). Junto con otros ciclos de piezas (por ejemplo, los Dialectos de Árbol), este Bestiario forma parte de mis intentos para remover del centro de atención al humano; “deshumanizar” el oído para así poder escuchar mejor a aquellos otros a los que usualmente no se les escucha.
