Self implies the fourth collaboration between Nacho Duato and Alberto Iglesias. This composer has worked with Duato in Cautiva (1993), Tabulae (1994) and Cero sobre Cero (1995). In a world where worries of a material kind seem to take over our lives, the human being as such is being relegated to a marginal place within our comprehension of reality. Something seems to place itself between each human being and his conception of himself and other people in their own right. This seems, therefore, to be the right moment to reflect on the human being's essence, as something which preserves its value, despite appearing hidden behind a thick fog composed of factors foreign to its very centre. That person, who each of us carries within oneself, accompanies one throughout one's  existence and implies the true reality for each one of us.
