Work for Classical Guitar and Live Electronics. Built on a 3-note motif, this piece is inspired by a slow motion video of water freezing. The guitar enters into a conversation with the electronics (the acoustic and electronic world representing liquid and solid states respectively), its melody leaving trails of crystals behind it. A contrasting section slices guitar chords into fragments and rearranges them according to randomly permutated algorithms, which seem to have a knack of reproducing Latin rhythms.
