Luna Reversa

Program Notes
Luna Reversa is a work created from segments of a musical score I composed for a semi-silent film titled "Luna." The work incorporates music from the score with selected slides from the original film. I wrote all the music using electronic media, synthesizers, sampled sounds an a series of recordings of violin and cello phrases performed live and later processed to obtain the reversed sounds of each musical gesture.
