Featuring the composer’s most relevant solo and chamber creation and coveringhis almost 20 year production on this field, this monographic phonogramfeatures renowned international soloists and ensembles specialized incontemporary music performance.

A major focus in the Portuguese composer's work is the dynamics of forms, forces, and flows in music. He explores spatial polyphonic paths through dome-shaped immersive sound systems. Another striking feature of his music is the presence of rather complex concepts that underpin the construction of his pieces without distracting in any way from their reasonable beauty. Ideas act as hidden functions that create lush musical forms despite their intellectual rigor.
