The composition by Carrillo, a Mellon post-doctoral fellow and part-time assistant professor in the DePauw University School of Music, was one of four pieces to receive a world premiere last night at New York City's Carnegie Hall.

The work, a concerto for percussion quartet and chamber orchestra, is entitled Algunas metáforas que aluden al tormento, a la angustia y a la Guerra. It was commissioned for the American Composers Orchestra (ACO) by the BMI Foundation, Inc./Carlos Surinach Fund.
