BOM DIA SOPHIA was conceived based on sound elements characteristic of the operation of a computer.
These sounds were captured, analyzed and converted into musical ideas that would suit the musical language of the oboe. This piece explores an aspect that interests me a lot, creativity and the process of choosing the performer at the time of the performance. Despite the two strictly rigid pages, the oboist has a central 2 min to explore a set of phrases, which, despite being very concrete, free him from formal constraints, thus allowing him to explore them and present a performance more suited to his taste and technical abilities.
BOM DIA SOPHIA is a commission from Antena 2 / RTP for the Young Musicians Award 2018. Thank you."
