Anoxia means lack of oxygen.

In 2001 Roberto López received a commission from the Center for the Diffusion of Contemporary Music, and while he was in the process of ideation and gathering information for the work, happened the tragic events of September 11.

This work titled Anoxia, comes from the need to express what happened on that fateful day.
