Pau sandaran, pianista, compositor

«La variació només té sentit com a persecució de la semblança»

(Igor Stravinsky)

At the beginning of my compositions, there usually stems a spontaneous idea. Once this idea is clear, my work as composer begins with its development establishing itself by playing around with established theme. For me, the core of what a composer does lies in how he deals with thematic material, something which can be acquired through learning. The essence of my creativity evolves out of my imagination. With this said, the evolution throughout the creative process of a composition usually results as something strictly intuitive. It is after this somewhat instinctual process that I procede in verifying the structure and form of my work.

My music is descriptive in nature with the intention of representing an image, feelings, or a specific situation, depending on my personal state of being. Music, for me, is a true reflection of the composer’s soul.
