Ecos al paso (Echoes along the Path) can be a road from which to board and depart, to change position or destiny. A pier opens infinite possibilities of movement, condition, and direction. Each tread introduces you to a new possibility-opportunity and sends you into the unkown. This Sound Pier fuses two elements inherent to the trip: the jetty itself, with its cargo of nostalgia, and a strange piano over the sea, more keyboard than piano — it’s the music of a ticket to travel. –Adrian Rumbaut
