Abstract arranged for a small instrumental group of a part of the work Nickelodeon, composed specifically for the homage concert to Wojciech Kilar, polish composer of movie soundtracks as "Dracula" of Francis Ford Coppola, or "The pianist" of Roman Polanski among more than 100 soundtracks of his catalog.

The homage concert to polish composer was attended in the room by the composer himself, October 20, 1997 at the auditorium Narcís de Carreras of Girona.

The Nickelodeons are mashines that still exist in some theme parks, that for 1 nickel (5 cents) they let you see a short fragment of a film. A little moment for fantasy.

This piece represnts the two faces of emblematic character "The Trump" created by Charles Chaplin at the beginning of XX century: the comedian and the poet, with two clearly differentiated musical parts.

The work Nickelodeon is inspired in 10 emblematic character of the world of cinema.
