" - We must insist that in art, the artist should not hesitate to use all that, which makes him reach the possibility of expressing the totality of the emotion in his work. There is not a more absurd fear than that of exceeding the limits of our own art ...-"
Henry Moore

The creative process is in a certain way an intimate and secret ritual.
When having adapted "Iron Maiden`s, Number of the Beast" of Biblical - satanic components to the tune of a Son Jarocho (a typical music of a south Mexican region), this counterposition of antagonistic elements is merged by a process which gradually makes them to become harmonic.
Número Bestial appears as a machinery of joint work. As a fragment of a story in process, a guide which lights up the path by which his imaginary moves through; the way in which this creative process, and its immediate results are nourished, the way they evolve.
From its complete appreciation, the pieces expose the exact moment of its conception.
