That sound that in its expansion through space manages to merge with it, manages to transform it, giving it new limits, or rather, diluting them, because once you are immersed in such a successful fusion, you don’t know more about them. The concrete is already a prisoner of wills of an extremely capricious nature. It is so that at that precise moment, when the limits of space are exceeded by such intensity, that space can no longer function as a container, because at this point, its heavy walls collapse before the new form that the sound has made of this one. It is then, when this “new form” supports itself and has broken with those restraints that present it tied, it has no ceiling other than infinity itself, opening up a possibility, which is presented as a trend, that is, ” the ascent”. However, although this “new form” that in its release invites us to lose ourselves in it, it is necessary to remember that it still maintains an old link with its old container, because although it belongs to an unprecedented being, its antecedent keeps it connected to space. , since when transforming it, it establishes a bridge with it, or rather, a bay, from which it becomes possible to set sail for the ascent. Despite the fact that this sound already described has already inaugurated a form that we call “new”, we recognize within it aspects of what is known, since it participates in notes, chords, harmonies. Let’s not forget now that yes, this is indeed the bay, which reminds us of what we know about the world and remains there to go and return, so we should not be afraid to see beyond and let ourselves be led by it to discover it. We speak then of a space with no more limits than those that sound can give it. A space that makes possible this tension between the ascent and the world. A space where the form finds a new being that goes back and forth between the recognizable and the unrecognizable. Throbbing perception. Didn’t we talk all this time about painting?
