ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A certain kind of Aesthetics have always been a very important part of Art for me. I have always been a fan of Baroque Music, Renaissance Artists and Gothic Buildings. My idea of Art was always noble and poor. Noble, because it should be able to satisfy also the most demanding expert, poor, because everyone should be able to grasp it. In it's ideal case it's that kind of raw beauty we find in natural Landscapes. This idea seems to be a bit of «kitsch» and passé nowadays, but we have the good fortune of living in a world in which we can decide how to express ourselves and no form of self expression is prohibited, or has a bigger or lesser meaning than another. From the moving and beautiful Chopin-sonades to Ornette Coleman's furious lines on the Saxophone, there's something to find in every kind of Music. That doesn't mean we have to like everything we hear, but that we should be aware that everyone has a different concept of Art, a different idea of what Art should be.
In a world in which everybody seems to be an expert and a critic, subjectivity in Art has become a very hard point to support.

I have no idea what style the Music on this CD is. It definitely isn't straight-ahead and it isn't fusion, although there are fusion elements in it. For sure it isn't rock or pop, though I personally think there is a lot of rock and pop going on in this tracks.
This music is probably the result of confused soul of the 21st century who doesn't feel the need to fit in a box with a name on it. Maybe the Music does anyways, maybe it doesn't. Maybe YOU will find a label to put on that box. And I think this is the strength of this music. It wasn't written to please some conservative music professor, neither was it to please some progressist radical-chic musician, it was written how it was felt at the moment. There wasn't anyone imposing me to compose in a certain style or to deliver a certain message, there weren't any compositional rules involved. I was shown the tricks to do that, but I never paid attention to them, because I always thought and still think that composing is such a personal process that it can't be tought.

The most important thing for me was always to be authentic in what you say and you do, and a lot fo the aspects of my character show in this music: the brainy part, the high-energy part; the jazzy part; the funny, ironic part; the romantic, the nostalgic, the majestic, the dreaming part, and the easy-to-recognize melodies, which have always been a part of my Music and much of the Music I've listened to.

In a few words: this music doesn't follow the description of a genre. It describes me.
Being truely authentic sounds so easy and logic, but I assure you it's the hardest things to achieve.
And this is what I believe in.
