Hálitos, for flute, violin and double bass, as its name man-ifests, it is a soft whisper of the wind full of tiny particles of memories. The different sound categories that are explored on the three instruments play to mask each other and to convert them in a unify complex sound, that constantly transforms, dematerializing and firming itself . Hálitos was commissioned by Movimiento Pu Joa, and premiered in 2017 at “ Jornadas de música nueva” in Asuncion – Paraguay.
