Negraestrella was created from a song I heard when I was a child. I remember a young girl with a foreign accent singing a song about swallows and tiny swifts that know everything about life, love and the end of love. And there are the black stars in the morning. The swifts and swallows that will not come back.

"Last April the 30th I read that Ernesto Sabato passed away. It was my birthday and I could not think about this important lost, but I was really touched. I read from him "Sobre heroes y tumbas" (On heroes and tombs) and there was inside one the most disturbing chapter I've ever read: "Informe para ciegos" (Report on the blind). Time for mourning arrived and one day I found a copy of an old Braille alphabet. As a mourning for Ernesto, I decided to talk about blindness. But the image I had on my head was the light. Bright light instead of darkness. But to not forget that when we first see the light, we are completely blinded".
