Este branco silêncio (This White Silence) is inspired by a book of poetry by my father, João David Pinto-Correia, which bears the same title. The piece is based on rhythmic patterns in the Portuguese language, especially in passages related to the theme of silence. Hesitation, breathing, expectation, and contemplation are also components of my exploration of poetics.
