Composer Pablo Santiago Chin compiles in an album his works for flute written in the past ten years, ranging from solo works to chamber music and a flute concerto. Under the New Focus Recordings label, Three Burials features flutist Dalia Chin displaying a wide range of themes and techniques developed throughout the years in close collaboration with her brother, both founding members of Fonema. Departing from the homonymous work after which the concert is titled, Chin is joint by Fonema vocalist Nina Dante and guitarist Samuel Rowe to present works by other composers also accompanied by video, but assuming different roles in relation to the music: video as score, as environment or as a narrative component.
