I conceive of music as a dynamic entity which evolves and varies with respect to time. As humans, our emotions depends on each circumstance we experience; all of our actions are ultimately determined by causes regarded as external to the will, i.e. we are always contingent on randomness, on uncertainty; so does music – which is indeed a manifestation of our state of consciousness.
When I write music, always am focused on its nature as an independent life form, having, this, its own personality and spirit albeit invariably subject to non–structural changes, so, every time the work is played, the interpreter is intended to depict to the audience a different passage, at a different moment of the same entity, impregnating to the oeuvre of his own sensations due to his very current circumstance.
Recorded music is not completely an antithesis of all of this, rather it works as a portratit, evoking a still remembrance of what was relative to that window of time. It has its own intrinsic value which cannot be neglected.
