In Chacona five bodies come together around the same melody. Five body-variations, like mechanical voices looking to find each other, constructing alliances in time’s common melody.
The chaconne is a baroque dance originating in Spain which spread throughout Europe in the XVI and XVII centuries. Many composers posed chaconnes in this time. Perhaps the most emblematic is J. S. Bach, that Sofia Gubaidulina paid tribute to in the XX century with her work Chaconne, which accompanies and gives the name to our piece.
