๐˜ผ work to talk about the union of the bonds that are transformed in time, circumstances. About distances, new ways of creating affective bonds. This is a deep, changing and lasting adventure. It will be 15 minutes where we will immerse ourselves through a melody that will transform, that will transform the environment and that will bring us a great moment to reflect. Look at the work progress my website.

In addition to being a renowned opera singer in Argentina, she is a poet with a great spiritual sense in her words. The idea of โ€‹โ€‹coming together to make art was postponed due to scheduling problems and a high demand for works. At the end of August 2020, we decided it was time to talk and create a work together. We focused on the bond of siblings and couples. In the transformations that happen in a relationship. The idea of going on trails and that even the most valuable things can wear out but the glow of desire can keep us united. ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ When we started talking to Sofi I understood that she was the perfect complement to create this work. Because each of us were going through situations of looking for a new way of relating. We found that the depth of the theme needs at least 15 minutes of music or more to be performed. That the sonority was going to need an instrumental accompaniment and a compositional complexity. The theme will always be present, it is the root. Sometimes it will be backwards, sometimes on the strings, sometimes in the middle and other times in the soprano being the main theme. But it will be a work of a single material that is permanently reworked. It will be the connecting path that joins the whole piece. Finally, this work does not only portray bonds in words. Its prosody shows the kind of endless energy that these have. During the creation of the poetry we made each verse join the next. The intention to create a poetry that can be said in a single impulse. As if there were an endless force that unites everything and that does not stop growing.

Senderos eternos y unidos,
por tempestades que palpitan nuestra sangre
surcando lagos, rรญos y montaรฑas.
Y en perpetuo movimiento:

El aire esculpiendo los cristales,
arena del tiempo
que discurre hacia mil horizontes,
resplandores y maravillas.

Entramado de almas,
estrellas en el manto etรฉreo del encuentro.

susurro creador del Universo
reverdeciendo prados,
floreciendo lazos, y sembrando

la uniรณn;
fulgor de toda existencia
como mil montaรฑas danzando,
como espejos profundos en los ojos,
ยกLa eterna colisiรณn de almas
creando perpetuos senderos!
ยกEn uniรณn!


Eternal and united paths,
by storms that beat our blood
plowing through lakes, rivers and mountains.
And in perpetual motion:

The air sculpting the crystals,
sand of time
that runs towards a thousand horizons,
sparkles and wonders.

Lattice of souls,
stars in the ethereal mantle of the encounter.

whisper creator of the universe
greening meadows,
blooming bonds and sowing

The Union;
shine of all existence
like a thousand dancing mountains,
like deep mirrors in the eyes,
The eternal collision of souls
creating perpetual trails!
In union!

About Santiago Veros

O Magnum Mysterium
The Argentine choral composer, Santiago Veros, was born in 1990 in Buenos Aires. At age 7 he began his musical studies and at the age of 18 he moved to La Plata to study Composition at the National University of La Plata. In 2013 he began his professional career as a choral composer writing for the children's choir of the municipality of Pilar in Buenos Aires. Santiago soon internationalizes his art writing for choirs in the Philippines, Chile, USA, South Africa, New Zeland, Taiwan and several countries in Europe. In 2018 he became the first Latin American composer to write music for the largest choral festival in the world, the Europa Cantat 2018 that was held in Tallinn, Estonia. Under his philosophy of joining borders, he has created virtual choirs with people from all over the world, built a global consortium called "The Choral Club" and created works under humanitarian slogans. Currently Santiago Veros works full time as a composer and also offers workshops to encourage the creation of new music and to write music in a community way.

In a few short weeks we will begin work on R-A-D-I-A-N-C-E, our newly composed work from Santiago Veros. The process, from start to now (we aren't finished until we perform it on October 11/12, 2019) has been a joy. Santiago's enthusiastic approach, clear communication, and ready acceptance of suggestions and clarifications has been encouraging and helpful. This has been an extremely easy process and I can hardly wait to hear the real live results!
