'For me, being rigorous means being honest, not to spare a thing, not even those things I would not want to know or, let alone, see for myself..' Zoran Music
LENT, LENT... CORRENT! ELS TEMPERAMENTS DE LA VEU is a melting pot of different worlds, internal dynamics, possible combinations, improvisations and surprises, timbres and emotions.
This is the result of a path I took a long time ago, a discovery of musical and sound vibrations present in different feelings. From daily responses and impulses to the most far-fetched situations and emotions. A work that, among other things, has led me to encounter musics and songs from other cultures, to go deep into experiences of mystic, ritual or festive nature, but also in the purest avant-garde creation and improvisation. So with this album I wanted to find a way to express each and every one of these emotions, granting them their particular identity, at least the way I see—I live—them. And to do so with utter unadorned intensity.
LENT, LENT... CORRENT! revolves around some temperaments and life scenarios expressed through voice, the magic of words, sound and the power of music. I like gravitas but also cheerfulness, beauty, versatility and risk… in a nutshell, to experiment. Doubt, fear, patience, affinity, love, the passing of time, death, desire, dreams... They are all states of presence in this ongoing, passionate arm-wrestling of our existence, the keystone of our life. I give you some of my temperaments of the voice.
