"Architectural constructions are governed by the laws of stability, mass and length, but musical architecture is the space of everything possible: there is no rule that crosses our path, except those that we gives itself, in a world where the notes, before mens, float in total weightlessness and where the luminous music meets every point of the Universe! "
