"La Resurrección de la Memoria" is a work of music for a chamber ensemble of seven instruments (two pianos, two marimbas, two basses, and harp). In it, two approaches of composition are explored, the improvised and the planned approach. At the same time, the composition follows the postulates of the composer’s personal aesthetics called Re-Enchantment. As a result, this piece tries to depart from modernist ideologies, re-appropriate elements of the past under a new mode, engage with themes such as the sacred, the mysterious, the magical, or the duende, and find enchantment at the inspiration level.
