Patagonia Norte

Patagonia Norte was written for the OrquestaSinfónica del Neuquén (Argentina) and premiered on June 17, 2005 with a simultaneous broadcast in public radio. In an abstract manner, the piece tries to reflect certain elements that can be found in the northern area of the Argentine Patagonia. Although originally conceived in one movement, the piece was later revised and divided into two movements: the first one was inspired by the energy of the ever-present wind and the dessert-like landscapes while the second uses rhythmic patterns from indigenous dances and rituals.
