About

My aim in music is to bridge the gaps between the different musics I love. African cyclic patterns and Balkanic ornamentation, free improvisation and methodic structure, clear melodies and falling-apart disorder. I try not to be too conscious about "fusion", instead I just listen, enjoy and study music, and then I do what sounds right to me.

At the moment I'm taking a break from composing and I'm focusing on my three bands: Kali Deryav (music from the Balkans, Turkey and the Caucasus), Ogham Ensemble (Celtic and Nordic music) and Tres Tristes Tangos (Klezmer, Tango, and weird stuff). I feel that I need to learn different musical languages (and learn them as deeply as I can) to have what it takes to make the music I want to do, but it also makes me very happy to play in these groups.

    Es una maravilla esta pieza.
    Tu lenguaje ha evolucionado mucho y has descubierto lugares únicos y bellísimos. Y al mismo tiempo se reconoce claramente que eres tú.
    A veces tu universo interior supera al que te inspira. Vas para grandes cosas, hermano. So fucking proud.

    I got such a beautiful calm feeling from listening to this. I never realized exactly when it happened, but I suddenly found myself immersed in the music.

    Muy buena. No leí la descripción, y por lo tanto no sabía que era aquella pieza de piano.

    Tuvo la ventaja de que al escucharla fui descubriendo poco a poco que en efecto es un piano! Al principio es una sospecha y no es claro en qué momento la sospecha se confirma.

    The beginning is terrible on MIDI. It gets bearable later on :)
