No.1 -El Principio-

About this work

This Pasillo from Ecuador was created in 2002 as an exercise in orchestration. It is a symphonic adaptation of the first pasillo composed for the piano. The piece aims to capture the vibrant sounds of traditional village celebrations, while also incorporating meditative melodies and passages of tension to tell the story of my life. Through the use of different colors and sounds within the orchestra, this composition successfully emulates the spirit of popular music.

No.1 -El Principio-

The Collection

My orchestral Ecuadorian music is the culmination of a process of internalizing folk music. To me, the orchestra is the grand medium for conveying the deepest sentiments of the self or portraying the experiences, individual or collective, of a group of humans. My orchestral pasillos possess a touch of knowledge, a hint of artistry, a dash of technique, and an abundance of heart.
