Chorus of the Jungle is a melodic transcription dictated by Siona, Cofánes and Secoyas spirit. Based on practices transmitted by my ancestors and by Amazonian world view about spirits and their presence in the physic world, an action was made at the Ecuadorian North-East in the province of Sucumbíos, this action consisted of listening and transcribing the melodic composition that was dictated by the spirits of the zone, there are several simultaneous voices, consequently a chorus was formed, this is interpreted by the voices played by a computer, with this material cultural implications between the ethnic groups of the Amazonia and the Occidental will be found. The play reflects about the Occidental processes that cause the death of a culture and its voices and world view.
