I was 14 when my father bought a “toca disco”, that’s the Spanish word for a vinyl disc player. I remember being amazed with the sounds coming out of the two speakers when the store owner put a record on. Since then, I’m a music lover.
Many, many years later, I received a gift: An Ipad. That’s the technological word for a “miracle”. I remember being amazed downloading apps like Korg iMS-20, Garage Band, TableTop, MusicStudio, iVoxel, ThumbJam, Animmog and SoundCloud. Since then, I’m an electronic musician.
After all these years, this is a late breakthrough for me.
I’ve been a witness to the disco music era. I danced away all the disco classics in my living room with my mother and friends from the block. That was the time when Donna Summer, Chic, Blondie and Gloria Gaynor ruled the world.
I hated rock, specially when disco passed away. But the 80’s brought back the groove with Madonna, Eurhythmics and Human League leading the way. That took me to Thomas Dolby and Men Without Hats!!. And then a revelation: The Art of Noise!!! Remember the dark girl smashing a piano at the abandoned train station? I do and I always will. Those crazy sounds were like a musical seed in my mind.
In the mid 90’s I moved to Miami, where I start exploring all music genres. Even country (“Brooks & Dunn”) world music (Deep Forrest) and oldies (Elvis was indeed the king) and my horizon of music was wide open. That was the time when I came to peace with rock. Why? Because I discovered Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Bruce Springteen and Led Zeppelin. Also I had a chilean friend, fan of The Cure and techno super bands like Depeche Mode, Erasure or OMD, and my “electro feelings” were clear again.
But the 2000’s came and the new century was eclectic to me, until electronic music came strong with amazing things like Prodigy, FatBoy Slim, Chemical Brothers or Gorillaz. I knew that you didn’t need to be an “artist” to be a musician. It was all about technology and creativity.
And that’s the present time. I have an Ipad, musical memories and 1000+ wonderful followers to listen to my music…
