"We have seen many things throughout our lives.
But there is a day when you stop, your mind, your brain is like a photo of what surrounds you.
These are my photos expressed in a small film that for me is a reflection of what I have lived all my life.
I invite you to watch and listen carefully to the faster or slower movement that with my instrument and with the genius of my friend Miguel across the distance we wanted to create for you.
Maybe you see yourself reflected."
