It is a science fiction work that takes place in a not-so-distant future, probable the present for many, in which we all exist at a pace so extreme that it does not allow us to feel, think, appreciate a moment… it does not allow us to live. We are machines that are self-programmed to produce and consume. Nature is merely a memory, blurry and confusing images that you can only evoke with your mind, once in a lifetime if you are lucky. The main character of this work: a meta-cello with an identity crisis. For a moment, he escapes from the routine; he opens his eyes and realizes that he exists, here and now. He has no idea what he is or how he got to that moment. Where did time go? <br> Not wanting to think any longer, he takes advantage of the fugue to explore himself. Different gestures appear all around him. Cold, distant sketches of a distorted mirror. Suddenly something starts to respond to him; every time he makes a sound, another one imitates him. Little by little he will create a conversation generating a cosmos of sounds that will lead him to that unreachable moment of clarity. <br> But, is this real? Or is it happening in his mind? Is this happening now? Or did it never happen? When was the last time you had a moment of clarity? When was the last time you realized you exist?
