The piece flows between two contraries: the incessant articulation of a 15-musicians ensemble in unison, stark vertical, and the speeches of Nezareth Casti Rey, a famous Peruvian child who became priest at the age of 4. Both layers, whose sound sources are also well differentiated, become a unity by repetition and variation, evolving into a mimesis that progressively is not hold by contrast, but its opposite.


Therefore, only when both worlds are perceived as an invariable phenomenon, only when 3D listening is, so as to say, turned into a 2D way to approach the musical fact, the piece starts a development leading by sound infiltration. The voice plays a central character intro the dramaturgic turn of the piece, which becomes an accompanied recitativo in which the voice (and consequently, the text) becomes increasingly understandable.
