„The impacts of the wrecking ball, along with the silence of the afternoon, the rumbling of the cow through the shadow, and the spasmodic fragments of this asthmatic voice, build the body of a symphony, precarious in its balance, in its temporal compass.” (aus: Lumbre, translation by Pablo Assandri)
