Philarmonie Köln. Video installation. 2010

The piece shows the tuning of several symphonic orchestras simultaneously, that have been filmed in different places and moments. The whole time the sequences advances forward and back in an amalgam of continuous sounds. The perpetual tuning becomes the center of the scene, being a metaphor about a constant preparation for something that never happens. The chaotic scenes seems to reach the end and suddenly start to go back, look like if the act of adjusting the instruments again and again and preparing everything, were the only reason of the musicians. The moment where all is guided by a single musical note, take a different connotation when it become expanded in time instead of be just a quick moment.
