Abstract arranged for female choir of a part of the work Water memory, the part I call "Your eyes", a love letter.

Each Third of March the town of Salt (Girona) celebrates a curious date: it's independance from Girona. You read that right, as the third of March of 1983 the town of Salt was constituted again after it was annexed by force to Girona by Franco to create what they called Great Girona.

This means in this town, every 3rd of March is celebrated for decades without any kind of complex its independence, and awards are given each year to different entities or persons, who during that year did something important for the town, and celebrate an award ceremony in the Municipal Theater.

In 2003 is celebrated 20 years of independence os Salt, and form the Water Museum and the City Hall of Salt was born this "Water Memory", a travel by the history of Salt using water as a link
