de Profundis II (2010) for violin and electronics
De Profundis is one of a series of pieces written for solo instruments, with an additional piece of electronic treatments in real time (live electronics). Profundis II, written in 2010, reports some events of 2004. One of these events would mark deeply my life: the unexpected death of my father. This piece, like almost all my works, does not intend to be a narrative of situations or feelings. However, its structure, sometimes based on thematic patterns, helps to bring out some of my feelings.
