The rhythm of the ancestral instrument "Txalaparta" inspires this work called DOINUAK (melodies). It is a wall made of wooden boards that runs along the dunes at one end of the beach of Zarautz, separating the dunes from the golf club. Paint covers the boards with colours, leaving gaps and playing with space, the same way as the Txalaparta, which bases its rhythm in strokes and silences. The similarity of the wooden wall with the Txalaparta is obvious and the rhythm of the work with the six colours represents the sound and the melody of this beautiful and old instrument.
