Bi / diletantes druidas, miles (Bi / dilettante druids, thousands) was commissioned in 2010 by the Centro Nacional de la Música in Argentina as part of the celebrations for the 200th anniversary of the Argentine independence. The piece is based on Charles Ives’ The Unanswered Question. Ives’ work was described by his biographer Jan Swafford as “a kind of collage in three distinct layers. Ives himself described the work as a “cosmic landscape” in which the string represent “ The Sience of the Druids” […] The trumpet then asks “The Perennial Question of Existence” and the woodwinds seek “The Invisible Answer.” Bi / dietantes druidas, miles is an imagined prologue to Ives’ work in which the three characters still have not found their purpose, a stay in which the existential hierarchy between the layers is not established yet, a state in which everyone asks, seeks or is silent.
