December 20, 2019


I spent the last days of November in Barcelona, recording new music at Nil Ciuro’s beautiful studio, and getting photos taken by my friend Laura Vidal-Abarca during the recording session and while hanging out around the city. It was one of the loveliest and most exciting experiences I have had since I live in Spain so I hope to make this kind of trips more often. One of the pieces I recorded will be part of a superb project by a German record label I have admired for many years now, and the other three pieces are for a very special series of singles I will be releasing with Sonder House during the first half of 2020.

This has been a year of new, exciting experiences. I moved to Spain, went on tour for the first time, performed at the incredible Q3Ambientfest, and shared stage and hung out with amazing musicians and friends. I also bought an upright piano, started working on a new album after almost five years, and have various pieces that will be released during the first half of 2020 for both personal and collaborative projects. Releasing concept albums (and EPs) is still what I live for, but I have learned that, sometimes, composing music for the sake of it is also fun, and that there’s nothing unprofessional with releasing those works. As long as I have something to say, I will keep sharing my music with you either with a full-length release, a stand-alone single, or anything in between. I’m also looking forward to performing live more often during 2020. It is honestly one of the most rewarding experiences and I hope I will have a good amount of shows to announce before spring arrives. There are other things I wish to tell you about but they will have to wait a little bit longer.



May 14, 2019 – Potsdam, Germany


Attending and performing at the incredible Q3Ambientfest was the highlight of this first musical adventure. It was the debut show of my tour, my first time being part of a festival, and my first time performing in Germany (and in Europe). As if that wasn't enough to make it an unforgettable experience, I had the privilege to play on Klavins’ Una Corda. It was a day of many first times and I could have never imagined them better. Thanks so much to Sebastian and Daniel Selke for making this happen, and to Diane Barbé for the beautiful pictures.



May 2, 2019 


So, it’s been a few days since I went back to my new home in Valencia after my first trip to Germany and I am still trying to process what I have experienced there. I had the chance to share my music in three different cities, to meet wonderful people, and to finally hang out with my favorite human. Many precious memories in so little time. First, I performed at the incredible Q3Ambientfest in Potsdam, where I shared the stage with artists I admire, and spent three days listening to beautiful music and hanging out with new and old friends. I could have never imagined a better debut in Europe. Then, I travelled to Düsseldorf to meet Seraphina after a very long period of LDR. She’s my love, my best friend, and my home. I have no words good enough to describe what it feels like to be with her, to be part of her universe. I am one lucky guy. In between picnics, movies and food dates, trips to the flea market, to various plant stores, and to rivers and forests with Seraphina, I performed a lovely gig with Tom Blankenberg at his studio. The piano was incredibly beautiful, the lights were delicate, and the audience was very silent and attentive. One of my favorite shows ever. Five days later, Seraphina and I took a train (four trains actually, but that’s a story for another post) to Frankfurt, where I played a very intimate show with Garreth Brooke at his studio in front of a lovely, supportive audience, and accompanied with delicious food. A gorgeous evening. However, what I remember the most from our two days with Garreth and Anna is how kind, understanding and heartwarming they were. They knew it was my last weekend with Seraphina in Germany so they gave us the space we needed, made us feel very comfortable, helped us organize our trips back home, and treated us like lifelong friends. They transformed our last days into a beautiful experience, and that cannot be taken for granted.
