Description
How do you start to cry? With the physical sensation of having a blocked throat and the slow muscular forces which push it up and cause us to feel a sense of release when the tears come out... This was the concept behind the origins of the composition.

The sentence from Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz’s poem which appears in the piece is: ‘My heart is undone and passing through your hands.’ Chaya Czernowin
