VIDEOGAMES, LOS GOYA AND TOURS
It’s been a while that I cannot spend sometime writing a post and it doesn’t mean that I’ve been laying around. Quite the opposite. It’s been some crazy weeks working hard to put some projects out there.
PERSEFONE TOUR POSTPONED
I always prefer starting with the bad news, and these ones are particularly sad. As some of you know, I play keyboards in the band Persefone. For the last 20 years this has been one of my main projects (if not my main project). We are about to release a new album and a tour was intended to help the promotion of it. We were supossed to support the german band Obscura and the tour would take place in Europe. Unfortunatelly and due to covid restrictions the tour had to be cancelled.
But it’s not all that bad news. The tour has been postponed to the next year. The tour dates look like this:
07.09. DE – KÖLN, GEBÄUDE9

portfolio that you can check. Mostly ambient music with a relaxed vibe but in this case, we had to do a Halloween track and a another track yet to be released. It’s always fun to work on themed tracks as it takes the creativity to places that I don’t usually visit that much. Different moods, different instrumentation. That all makes it interesting to work on tracks like “Halloween theme tracks”.
Here you have the trailer for the Halloween song. If you want to check the whole thing you’ll have to go to Steam and play the game.
Finally, one of the parts that makes me extra happy. The documentary Mr Hand Solo has 8 candidatures to the pretigious spanish awards “Los Goya” and one of them is for “Best original music” that Carlos Lozano and I wrote for this amazing film along with our partner Pere Revert at Sonnos Andorra. Now now, although these are amazing news, I’m been realistic and I know this won’t translate into a nomination BUT, nobody arrived to a goal without putting a first stem in the right direction. For me this is the first stem into that direction, and I mean the direction of being a film composer. Awards are nice and really welcome, mostly because of the exposure they give to the awarded person, but in the end what a musician wants is to make music and these kind of news allow us to be closer to this goal.
