Carlos Passeggi was born in Santiago de Chile and now resides in Argentina.  He started making music in a children`s choir in  San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina, at the age of 7 and started studying percussion at 13 in Santa Fe, where he did 5-years training in Music at the “Liceo Municipal de Musica”.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :The first A the exposition: It begins with a long introduction with the woodblock just playing quarters at the 5th bar the first theme is suggested by the marimba and after that some of the other instruments, snare and bongos, starts to appear with the same rhythmical idea, and also suggesting. Slowly all instruments are added making a crescendo to bar 38 when finally the marimba presents the first theme complete. This theme is absolutely in but has all the time that game between tempo and up tempo notes. At bar 54 appears the 2nd theme presented by the glockenspiel, more melodic and less rhythmically than the first one and it could be understand it in 6/8, but also is written in . The second part B the developing: This part is like a simple developing of some elements of A most of all of the first theme. Here the tom toms have some melodic parts made it by pressing the heads and changing the pitch with that. Everything is simple but the coordination must be very strong and each instrument must be listening. Also this part has an improvisation for 34 bars in a long crescendo. The third part A` the re exposition: This part starts at bar 124 after the big crescendo of the second one. But its starts with the second theme, presented all the same as in A after that its starts a simple variation of the introduction, is shorted and then again the first theme of A to goes to the end. The piece has some air of north argentine folk music like cuecas, chacareras o gatos in its rhythmic elements, the up tempo notes and most of all the game between and 6/8. And the melodic parts are in a C mixolidean mode. These kinds of scales with pentatonic scales are commonly in north argentine music. The piece is simple but coordination is very important cause all the time are games between instruments with that up tempo motifs so in some moments it could be a little bit confused for students.
