Melos

The Greek word melos was initially used with the sense of “articulation”, although it ended up specifically designating the tonal component of sound or melody. That is why I wanted to maintain here this double significance as a tonal component (motif, theme, etc…) and, of course, as a general articulation principle of all the composition that develops in short modules characterized by their variations in musical gesture affecting different parameters, especially in the the work of orchestration. This articulation leads all the lines of the piece from materials that are continuously generating derivations.

The work is short, lasting between 8 and 9 minutes. It uses clear writing using only more contemporary resources when sporadically required. It pursues an almost chamber-like role that brings it closer to a concerto for orchestra.
