requiem for the 43 from Iguala

from all new pieces of the new cd, this is by far the one that let me totally exhausted. usually i compose with my cello, from ideas that come from improvisations. but this time i wanted to sit and write first of all the music. it was fucking tough. i couldn’t barely play it live. it was 3 weeks of full time work to record it, and over all, make a good production; finding the right character, the equilibrium in the mixing, the kind of reverb (i tried maannyyyyy…), to get on tune each little part, to choose the right take among 30… it was exhausting. but one day i knew i had it.

it’s dedicated to the 43 students recently killed and thrown to a dump in méxico. what the fuck does it matter what it took me to make it?
