"This collection of new classical Latin American work by the Cuban born, Miami based, composer Orlando Jacinto Garcia is a series of pieces that involve lyrical acts of memory set against a time free present. There are abstract references to music listened to by the composer in his past. Repetition and slow evolution of materials result in a temporal stasis which is similar in effect to some Asian and Latin American ethnic music -- the perception of the moment is of utmost importance. The exploration of the counterpoint between register, densities, timbres, and pacing are the aesthetic basis for the music. Great core is given to the point where silence begins and sound ends. At times the music seems to be far away, like the chiming of church bells in a distant town, or a memory of childhood, or an insight almost grasped -- kind of twinkling like a night sky; and at other times it is strong and intense, full of current and direction, deep colors and powerful gestures."
