Una noche de verano Jordán Valencoso

Electroacoustic work for 8-track tape, based on the homonymous poem by Antonio Machado, which is included in his work Campos de Castilla (1912), and which is shown below:

A summer night
—The balcony was open
and the door of my house—
death entered my house.
He was getting closer to his bed
He didn’t even look at me.
with very fine fingers,
something very faint broke.
Silent and without looking at me,
death happened again
in front of me. What have you done
Death did not respond.
My girl was calm,
hurt my heart.
Alas, what death has broken
it was a thread between the two!
