Université D’Altitude 2016 — Interview

Hugo Warinsky interviewed yours truly at the end of Université D’Altitude International Workshop for Young Composers (Saint-Martin-Vèsubie, France, 2016), so here you can listen to me [trying to] explain the musical ideas behind my Vértigo (2016), which was wonderfully premiered back there by the amazing Ensemble Multilatérale.

Hope you enjoy or, at least, have fun!
