El Paseante magazine publishes an interview with Palazuelo, and presents some fragments of scores redrafted especially for this edition.
Pablo Palazuelo’s training as an architect influenced his interest in mathematics and physics, which soon expanded with the discovery of Oriental philosophies, esotericism and Kabbalah. After the apparent simplicity of his abstract compositions there is a framework of theoretical referents. More than producing a bounded and closed object, its geometries try to express change and metamorphosis. Although formally working with polygons, prisms, rectangles and other geometric bodies, Palazuelo is interested in the intrinsic energy and movement emanating from forms. His compositions require an active imagination on the part of the receiver. It is about the eye, when looking, rather than seeing visually, being able to “see inside” or “know”.
