Although my relationship with contemporary classical music began when I was 17 years old at university (an institution where I went to study the Degree in Musical Composition but that I left feeling: "I don't want to become one of them") it wasn't until I met Francisco Guerrero that I really felt that I was beginning to understand something different. And deep.
From Francisco Guerrero I received special teachings about complexity which sprang from his research into Complex Music, a concept based on observations of nature's complex mathematical structures; not so much in their outward appearance as in the shaping of their inner forces (chaos, attractors, fractals, etc.) His most remarkable gift was for me a new view of music, an understanding of a piece as a whole, and the ability to comprehend music as order.

Here is a short piece of mine from that period: "Le Souffleur"(1996) for Bass Clarinet solo.
Played in this recording by Josep Arnau Pastor, who premiered it in Spain at Teatro Central de Sevilla paying a homage to Francisco Guerrero.
