Kinesis II for flute and piano has been dedicated to María Victoria Gómez, who premiered it with the author on the piano. It was finished on Agust 10, 1987, and is written in an atonal language with permanent metrical changes. It begins with a dizzying section in which the flute and the piano are engaged in a lively dialogue with wiggly melodies which include, according to the expressive needs, arpeggios alternating just and augmented fourths or minor thirds and seconds. Now and then a minor chord with major seventh or its inversion punctuates the musical discourse. After a flute solo, a much slower second section arises in which the piano assumes an accompanying function, although in two passages it acquires prominence through contrapuntal procedures. In the third section an introspective flute comes back with a self-dialogue between the high and low registers. The work concludes with a symmetrical dissonant accord in which the lowest C of the flute occupies the exact center.
