Lunar Life. Throughout the composition of the work the sounds where defining at the same time the real and virtual spaces for the piece. The flute´s potential as a sound source is endless (bass flute and a 2.5 meter long  double bass flutes where used). This possibilities together with technology made me feel in a trip that could sometimes go beyond our senses. I hope this can be shared through the work. I would like to thank Dr. Alejnadro Escuer who helped with the sounds used. Lunar Life was a commission by Alejandro Lavanderos and it is dedicated to him. It was composed with funding from the Arts Department of the Catholic University of Chile.
