Comments | This work is inspired by the optical effect that occurs when two mirrors are facing each other: at the right angle, the reflected image can be repeated infinitely, creating a visual precipice or tunnel effect. The structure of the work, as well as most of its melodic and rhythmic material, are based on this idea, from which I have tried to get the best musical results. In 2013, it was awarded at the X Andrés Gaos Composition Prize (A Coruña, Spain).
