November, 2016: Ronde de Papier

In 2011 I made the soundtrack for a fantastic animated short film created by Marie Bouchet. Last year Marie made other fantastic animation (very short, less than 1 minute), in which again my music appears. "Raíces y Misterios", from 2002. From time to time I find my music associated to videos, presentations, promo campaigns and so on, and it's a real pleasure when my music is connected to pieces of art like these!

You can watch it here.

I just wanted to share this here!

November, 2016: Major update on Works

How is everything going?

Two weeks ago I finished a major update of «Works». I've made some changes that I was thinking about since the last year, and I've added some additional information. Now it's everything a bit better :-)

Actually not thinking much about my music. After finishing «Navigator» I wanted to spend a time doing other things and trying to relax (though finally it's being time to do things of my job, family, home and so on). Besides updating «Works», the only things I'm doing concerning my music are reading a couple of books about mixing and acoustic and updating part of my software, not very interesting. But in December I want to begin some new plans!

Thanks again for the good reception of «Navigator»!

Now playing – Metallica: Hardwired... To Self-Destruct (so-so)
