Music is something extremely subjective (abstract), it is incredible how it can be interpreted differently among people, when some melodies sound really good to me same ones heard by others could sound just horrible and vice versa, nowadays I could even say that our mood possibly affects how much we like it or how much receptive we are when listening new music, fusions or new crazy ideas. Every melody in the air has a reason and makes someone feel different in any sense.
Fortunately when I was young I got the chance to get in contact with music by playing a keyboard my father gave me, I was about 8 when I started learning it, the more time I spent on front of the keyboard the more I felt interested in music and how it is made, at that particular point the music just became to me a true interface to communicate all good/bad feelings I had inside out but early when I was 15, drinks, parties, friends and girls arrived into my life and I had to forget a bit my keyboard and it was here when I started looking for something cheaper, portable, friendly and confident… a guitar.
I don't consider myself a professional musician and perhaps it is true that I have many things to learn from many people playing around. I never studied music for living of it, I have studied music just to feel better myself, music is not more than the biggest hobby I have and I just would like to share it with whoever wants to hear it, I'm not interested in explore it with commercial purposes.
And well, what I have to say is that if I have some spare time I don't believe that there is something better than being selfish and play my guitar and synthesizers at home for hours and hours insatiably, that's what I call holly moments.
Antiguas calles (Antigua sangre) which translate Old streets (Old blood) was a project I made during the winter in London in 2008, I started writing the lyrics first and then I put the music behind, this song was inspirited on my hometown Cali and tells the story of a guy arriving back to the town more...

The land that nobody has dreamed to be in, I made it in London at the end of autumn 2007, I started building the whole music structure first and then wrote the lyrics on top, perhaps this is my favourite one so far, I just love the chords and melody expression. This song is a critic about life style and more...

This is a instrumental song I made during the testing process of a c++ program that took me ages for finishing it (many requirements, many short notice changes, too many bugs), it was in Rio de Janeiro in the summer of 2005. This is probably the fastest song I've ever made, it didn't take long... more...

When I wrote this song I was a bit angry inspired on my home town Cali and all arguments I got for leaving it, I wrote the lyrics just after I left my country for the very first time travelling to Costa Rica in 2000. Once I got a clear idea about what I was feeling in that moment I started making the music and then put the lyrics more...
