Lichtung (the clearing) by the Portuguese composer Emmanuel Nunes is presented here in its third finality. Heir to Stockhausen in his conception of a work of art as a living organism, Nunes organizes his grand work through numbers of cycles and groupings.
The clearing, the act of creating distance, of examining through electronics, directions, locating, the dazzling speed of the musical trajectories that spread out in space and in the intimate conscience of time.
