Comments | This work is an exploration of the relationship that can be established between a geometrical and a musical structure. The starting point have been the seven pieces of the century-old puzzle of Chinese origin called Tangram, which geometrical proportions and fractal nature have been taken as the basis for most of its music material and form. It was commissioned by the Barcelona Modern Ensemble to whom it is dedicated.
