2013  Retour seven instruments  7:00 min. 

Retour Retour is scored for 2 winds, 1 brass, 1 percussionist, 1 keyboard instrument, and 2 bowed strings played in absolutely any combination. The brass instrument can be replaced by a voice (female or male of any type) that will vocalize or produce noise similar to the proposed material. It is formed by three little pieces of a lyrical character which contrast and alternate with a fourth piece that contains a much more active, percussive, and dry musical material thus, resulting in a Rondo-like form.
This alternating fourth little piece maintains the cohesion and unity of the work, and paradoxically,
at the same time, generates unique discourses since, in addition to containing a constant cyclical material that
does not need to be synchronized and wll never be repeated exactly in the same way,
it also asks for brief completely improvised solos.
