I began composing this piece without having a title for it. While thumbing through the loteria cards, I became fixated on card number forty-two, la calavera. A calavera is a skull with crossbones. While working on this mysteriously peculiar piece, I had a strong feeling that the image on the card was guiding me through the composition. I became so spooked, I wasn't sure if I could continue working on the piece. I was only able to finish it by choosing to believe that the image presented itself to me as a remembrance of a long lost soul.
