Delante – Detrás (engl. in front – behind) is about communication and being together in a group. It’s about connecting and disconnecting with others. Each of the three players is searching for her/his place; who is she/he, who is she/he in relation with others? Is there room for equality?

Music is constructed thinking about layers; sometimes all the three musicians are moving in the same layer, sometimes some musicians are making background to someone else (being “behind”), and sometimes there’re layers of noise or something else on top of others (being “in front”).
