Composition for flute, clarinet, french horn, violin and cello.

The future in the piece is showed as an existing reality. Instruments go out of their initial nature and nearly lose it completely. The inaudibility of certain moments confirms the transition of the music to a new form when the situation of concert performance becomes the important thing without the necessity of having sounding realisation.

Under Construction is an effort of reconstructing the unexercised composition for violin and piano, probably a fantasy (the initial violin "cadenza" points on that) or some sort of romantic-type violin sonata in one movement. The sounds try to reconstruct this composition, but being deformating by their nature they build just a contour of the piece, its framework, that is something different in its "unbuilt" nature rather than the intention of "built" and complete composition.
