S(lips)tream / Infinite Tube / A Colibrì in your Mouth
This piece uses the sounds of ancient flutes as original material. These sounds were performed by Thomas Reyna using mainly extended techniques. I processed these acoustic sources several times, the result is three movements, each based on one or two acoustic sounds and their consequential transformations.

There's an alien in my sax!
This multichannel electroacoustic composition is a study based on my own tenor saxophone playing and it explores the perceptual boundaries between the acoustic and electronic domain. Acoustic sources are mixed with processed sounds resulting from different techniques of analysis and resynthesis. The first part of the piece focuses on sonic textures made by multiphonics, breath-noise, and subtones, which leads to a deep-listening experience. Whereas the second part of the work enacts a more dynamic scenario, assembling slap-tones and other rapidly articulated sounds. This idea of a hybrid sonic world where technology is the virus that infects my acoustic instrument it’s inspired by the art of David Cronenberg.
