The piece is a “channel-surfing”, i.e. what is heard by a radio listener that jumps back and forth between three different radio programs: a news show, a broadcasting of a contemporary music concert and a pop-music program. The leading thread are several short texts taken from flamenco popular songs as well as flamenco rhythms and sounds like guitar phrases, clapping, heel-clicking, “jaleos” (shouting to encourage dancers) and guitar.
