The word Nabla (“Phoenician harp”) derives from the Greek translation of the Hebrew Nebel, a stringed instrument used by the ancient Hebrew people. It is also the origin of the mathematical symbol ∇, used extensively in vector calculus and differential geometry. My composition creates a connection between these two universes, drawing musical material and inspiration from mathematical sources. In addition, the Nabla symbol is also used to represent indeterminacy in philosophical logic. This indeterminacy, I believe, is also an inherent part of the artistic creative process.

Nabla was premiered on April 11, 2019 at the Tenerife Auditorium by members of Quantum Ensemble (Cristo Barrios, clarinet; David Ballesteros, violin; Gustavo Diaz-Jerez, piano; and Manuel Perez, horn from the Spanish Brass Luur Metals).
