Piece for alto saxophone solo, which on the one hand studies the technical possibilities that the displayed piece offers, with a rather lyrical line with modal elements and on the other, creates a process of growth in which tension accumulates until the outburst at the piece’s culminating moment. All this should be created in a very short period of time, but always with a gradual progression. This should be the great challenge that the piece presents.

The first part is based around one mode which at the same time generates its own sub-mode, creating a sweet, expressive, delicate and emotive display, which will be followed by a rather difficult technique which seeks instability and a rather nervous continual progression.

Nevertheless, a rather in-depth study is practised in terms of this instrument’ ranges, as the first part starts in the deep range, moving to the mid range and then reaching the culminating point in the high-pitched range, also using harmonics as a reference to the piece. The second part is no longer progressive and will always be a proposal on these four different ranges, whilst other tonal resources will also be contributed, such as «slaps» and «frolatti».
