I started writing music when I was a child. Today my
musical compositions range from solo instruments to
symphony orchestra, from cantata to opera and musical,
from primitive music instruments and concrete sounds
to computer electronic music. I organized my work
following the ramifications of my creative process
which I call Labyrinth of Music.
I used computers not only to write music, but also for
many video inter-art collaborations with leading
writers, visual artists, and musicians. Computers are
a functional extension of our memory, and they help us
in the development and understanding of musical
The development of my compositions can be followed
through a small piano piece that becomes a piano
concerto [ex: “Argentina Fantástica”],
or a song that leads to the creation of a cantata
[ex: “La ronda del Angelito”], or an opera
[ex: “Please, Call me... Jackie”].
Also my chamber music inspired in Borges literature
is developing now into a symphonic work: "After Borges."
The two concepts that my music expresses are infinity
and eternity, infinity as a universal concept of space,
and eternity as a universal concept of time.
My labyrinth of music travels with the listener to
understand these amazing concepts.
Guillermo Silveira, composer
