This work is composed with three main points of focus. First, the fundamental laws of physics (aka symmetry laws) form the conceptual fabric of the piece. The score is a mix of traditional and graphic notations, with the latter comprised of astronomical data. Second, the commission came from an extraordinary youth orchestra in a disadvantaged neighborhood of Santiago, Chile. Finally, the work invites charango further into the world of classical-contemporary music, while attending to the many strengths from folkloric music for which it is known.
