Ourobóros explores the time looping and devouring of musical material within itself, reaching a perfect circular form. Ourobóros was written as an inspiration by the same-titled creature, described in "The Book of Imaginary Beings" by Jorge Luis Borges. It is a symbol of continuity and continuous transformation, not only of life but also of the sound and time passing by. Those elements are bound inevitably in a fate of a composer and every person that approaches the music at the very moment. How the relation with sound and time is able to enrich and transform a person? Is it able to purify one and add something new to life? Are we ready to rebirth in Ourobóros of our world?
