“Música invisible / invisible music” is an accumulative project based on the exploration of new possibilities for different instruments. The research on unusual techniques (nothing really new under the sun!) comes together with the exploration of new perception techniques. A melody in 1/32 tones in the flute not only deals with microtonality but also creates a new listening context; a trumpet player playing their  instrument into a tin of water not only opens new acoustic possibilities for the instrument but also changes the theatrical role of the player in the concert. The catalogue of physical curiosities is subordinated to the creation of different ways of thinking the instrument, working in the abstract zone where the instrument loses its familiarity and becomes "invisible".


The project is divided into Books, every book is dedicated to a different instrument.


“Música invisible” aims at combining the composers’ view together with the performer’s experience, as two complementary sides of the musical composition process.
