Program notes:

Por um triz! (That was close! in English) uses a wide range of recorded and electronic sounds interacting with the piano. The electronic part amplifies what the pianist plays, increasing texture complexities, stressing gestures and reverberating harmonies. In some parts of the piece, it utilizes recorded piano sounds to approach the timbre of the real instrument and the electronics. The piecewas composed in the composer’s personal studio and in the Research Center of Contemporary Music of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (Minas Gerais/Brazil).
