The piece “Seven infinitely short periods of (Winter) time” was composed in 2002 during my first Winter in the United States. It was my first Winter with snow (lots of snow, by the way; I was living in New Hampshire). The experience of below-freezing temperatures was something completely unfamiliar to me, accustomed as I was to the other side of the thermometer, the “above-melting” temperatures from Brazil. The names for each of the movements are merely insinuated on the score (they appear at the end of the last page of each movement: Musification, Old Tune, Basement, Wilting, What??, Snow Down, Final Basement). These names reflect to some extent the original connection of each piece with a place, a situation, a musical process, present or past.
