This work has an essentially descriptive character. With sometimes, a “pathetic” environmet, it follows a somewhat indefinite path, combining small rhythmic motifs that intertwine, dialoguing with each other. A small interlude presented by a long sustained chord, during which small cells appear, gives a suspensive moment. Suddenly, the work takes a tremendously energetic direction, with a very contagious rhythmic spirit and enormous brilliance. Then, there is a musical “pause” where the created sound environment is caused trought the use of some effects on the accordion.Moving to the end, the piece slightly revisits the texture used at the beginnig, ending up in a somewhat inconsequential tone, in the background, giving a certain sense to its title: “Hiccups”.
