Largo aliento

series of woodwind instruments built by the artist that make visible on their surface the years of the life of the tree with which they are made. With each instrument, a series of drawing studies that are based on it's tree rings are used as visual scores to be interpreted by an invited performer in order to make audible the temporality, history and climatic events that left a track on the tree.
