New release: TWO WORLDS, by Hiroshi Kobayashi & Rafael Esteve. NEMS#19

Hiroshi Kobayashi, sinobue, flute, picolo, alto flute, bass flute; Rafael Esteve, double bass. This is the planned record by two masters sharing their two worlds: orient and occident. Efforts in order to release it in the 90’s failed; but the music is too good to remain in a shelf. It is amazing how both worlds merge to produce an outstanding piece of art. This was a duo with huge potential, as some had already realized then. Complexities of life made it not possible, but the recorded effort deserves another opportunity.

Played on March, 30th, 2020, during the Coronavirus pandemic. Pandemic Suite #12.  Processed in November 2020 and January 2021. Voice taken from videos of Marduque Rebecca. Texts from O Caminho Iniciático nos Arcanos do Tarôt e da Cabala (Samael Aun Weor, Bogotà 1917- Mexico 1977). This is a special project. The sounds waited for months until I found the right voice. I choosed this voice, among many others, because it is haunting and warm. The words are from a cabalistic text, but in reality this is of no importantce. Voice is used as an instrument.Thanks to Hamfuggi Records for releasing it.

UM YU, by MACROMASSA. Nova Era Musica Secreta is rebirthing! Twelfth re-release!!

This is the 12th and last reissue of the first batch. Now we take a break to breath, while we prepare more reissues! Este álbum es la aplicación de las técnicas de Muelles Sensoriales 1 a la formación Zog, es decir, clarinete bajo, saxo barítono y dos baterías. El trabajo en estudio permitió además añadir pistas de otros instrumentos. Released July 9, 1995. Juan Crek: saxo barítono, percusión; Victor Nubla: clarinete, clarinete bajo, contrafagot, oscilador; Patri Martínez: batería, vibráfono, arpa diatónica, percusión, guitarra fuzz, laúd, cajón; Pep Figueras: batería, percusión, trombón, bongó.  Some consider that this is the finest Macromassa work. It belongs to the quartet era, with 2 drummers. Sound in this era was overwhelming, and they used to call it psycho heavy. An extraordinary cd! In loving memory of Victor Nubla and Patri Martinez.
