Tango del desamparo (1987)

(The Neglect Tango)
For cello, piano and magnetic tape.

Death has always been one of the main themes in tango. “The Neglect Tango” is an autobiographical piece but it does not tell a story, it is rather about the emotion and pain caused  by the death of my brother.

In the scene, the instrumentalists sing, recite and algo play instruments of percussion. In the magnetic tape there are voices, bandoneon that turn into sirens and percussive tango phrases that sound like bangs.
