¿Aún escuchas mi voz? Marco Neri

¿Aún escuchas mi voz? is a computer-assisted composition for B-flat clarinet, alto saxophone, viola, cello and electronics. A Folkloric Cardenche song, originally from Durango (Mexico) was used for the sound material. This song is performed by a male a cappella trio. The cardenche is a local cactus whose spines are incredibly painful to extract. With this piece, I expressed my personal reaction to the many cultures in Mexico that are about to disappear, losing traditions, languages and worldviews forever. I admire the singing and the people who interpret it. Alas, all the singers of this genre have probably already perished. All that remains is the memory of their voices and lyrics and the testimony of their existence in recording archives.
