Of the uncertain
ceramic flutes, contrabass clarinet, viola, cello and electronics (2022, WP)
»Of the uncertain« takes up themes of insecurity and innocence. The piece references three different graffiti (one from Perú and two from Berlin) to describe the transition to adulthood and the uncertainty about the next stage of life. The basic idea of the project »La incertidumbre del mañana« (The Uncertainty of Tomorrow) is reflected in the transformative process of the piece which develops the initial playful character into dense atmospheres.
