In 2017, after having visited the Galapagos Islands and Mindo rainforest in Ecuador, María Dalberg sat by the sea and listened to the waves while writing down her memories. She got interested in the way the rhythm of the ocean affected her writings.
María writes sound poetry were she uses the language to create rhythmical structures, focusing on tempo, the tone of her voice, and the texture of the sound.
