As celebration for the releasing in this month of the new version of this website and that actually you are visiting, I've wanted to share something special:
It's a new piece, called «Improvisation In An Old Style», being the only recording that I had made sice my abandonment in August of 2012. It's an improvisation for electric piano that I recorded in the evening of the past 18th of August of this year for Ruben Blancquaert following a bit the essence of the project of 2011 «Improvisation For...».
The sensation recording this improvisation was very nice, as much as that this has been the only time that I played my keyboard during the last year, enjoying with it and helping me to remember why I've loved so much to make music in the past.
With time, maybe more recordings...

Hello there and welcome to the new version of the website!
It's nice to be again writing you after all these months of silence and retirement! :-)
...Does it mean that I'm returning??? Not exactly, music is not a priority now in my life and I didn't do much during the last year... but truely I begin to feel some wish to make a bit of music, so that I want to take my time and, maybe, to record something, maybe during 2014. I don't know much more!
What I feel is that after more than a year without any contact with my own music something pushes me to be now a bit active. I bought a new guitar the last month (Schecter Hellraiser, I love it!) and I play from time to time, not much, but enough to feel sometimes the desire to write or record, or the desire of continue increasing my equipment... All this can be the beginning of something nice here!
Among all these ideas of being a bit more active with my music, I though that it would be a good idea to make a new version of this website, and this has been truely my activity during the last 4 or 5 weeks, to create "The Official José Travieso and Cautiva Website v2.0". The old site was nice and enough for me all the time, but the menus were created in Flash language, which it's not very used in mobile phones and some tablets, giving problems of compatibility and other limitations. As much as that everyday these kinds of technologies are more and more used, everyday my website were needing more and more a change. Finally, in spite of updating the menus to other more friendly language (my first idea), I decided to make from zero (more or less) a new site, and this that you can see is the result. I hope you like...
I think that this new version is more slow and not so funny because not having the sonorous piano of the old one :-(, but -on the contrary- it's more compatible, more beautiful, more easy to expand and more modern and dynamic. I believe that this new version wins!
Have a look and tell me what you think... You can continue visiting the old website clicking here (by the way, you have a link at the end of the page), but I'll not update it more. I've just kept a copy as historial archive, not more. You can find all the information in the new version, so that we don't need the old one!
As additional point, I've updated too the «Works» files and improved the wallpapers.
Soon, a bit of new music: just an improvisation (electric piano) that I recorded the last August.
