The heroes of Orzán is written for a large wind orchestra and speaker who, in the way of voice in off, guides the entire composition by narrating the extra musical events, almost in the way of 'police reports'. These extra musical elements follow the tragedy occurred on the beach of Orzán in January of 2012, where the policemen José Antonio Villamor, Rodrigo Maseda and Javier López became heroes when they tried to save the life of Slovak student Tomas Velicky. As said above, all these extra musical elements are described by the speaker throughout the entire composition, overlapping them to the music as a single unity.

I. Prologue: voiceless voice.
