Work no. 90
This was the first piece I composed in which I consciously incorporated pop and rock music influences, since I listen to those genres a lot, but before 2016 I think it was difficult for me to accept them into my music. So this music is about acceptance and letting go, and although the title is simply "breathless" in Spanish, for me it's from a specific quote from a Carlos Castaneda book: "Para mi solo recorrer los caminos que tienen corazon, cualquier camino que tenga corazon. Por ahi yo recorro, y la unica prueba que vale es atravesar todo su largo. Y por ahi yo recorro mirando, mirando, sin aliento." ("For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel looking, looking, breathlessly.")
