"The musician Xavier Maristany suggested to the CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona) that they should change their hold music, which at that time was Bach. They accepted his proposal and have been using his music for years now. I was thinking about working on the connection between sound quality and visual form when, one day, I called the CCCB to ask them for some information. Luckily they left me on hold long enough for me to realise that Maristany’s music was exactly what I’d been looking for.
The initial pedal created a terrain and opposition, a force I related with a sphere moving upwards; the growth of a life form with thorns, leaf and flower, decisive and dynamic, it emerged from the initial sound as a whole with the help of the white sphere. Little by little I gradually found forms and movements that matched each sound; little metal tongues, weightlessness, rhythmic voice, the appearance and sudden disappearance of drops of water, the emergence of a creature from the depths of the ocean, the longing of time, balance and, finally, the nocturnal hubbub of the city represented as a kind of still life. The days I spent working on this piece were like a dream." Aurora Gasull
