Boat Horns, is a piece that arises as a result of the work carried out jointly with the Musicians and flute professors of the Music Faculty of the UNAM of Mexico Alejandro Escuer and Rodrigo Sial, during the development of the artistic residency carried out in the Mexican Center for Music and Sound Arts. The piece consists of a musical collaboration within the framework of the residency, the result of having been selected as one of the winners of the 1st Lumínico video art contest in Mexico in 2016.

The work is an electronic composition using some flute samplers by Alejandro Escuer and the development of an electronic piece on my part, trying to generate an abstract work that makes us forget the meaning of the flute and also generates a visual piece by itself through the use of visualization of sound waves, with the aim of creating a visual-sound work that refers to the space between two worlds, to the ocean that separates two continents, an approach to the sensation exerted by the large horns of ships full of emigrants upon arrival at the piers, the gateway to the Americas at the beginning of the 20th century.
