November, 2016: Ronde de Papier

In 2011 I made the soundtrack for a fantastic animated short film created by Marie Bouchet. Last year Marie made other fantastic animation (very short, less than 1 minute), in which again my music appears. "Raíces y Misterios", from 2002. From time to time I find my music associated to videos, presentations, promo campaigns and so on, and it's a real pleasure when my music is connected to pieces of art like these!

You can watch it here.

I just wanted to share this here!

November, 2016: Major update on Works

How is everything going?

Two weeks ago I finished a major update of «Works». I've made some changes that I was thinking about since the last year, and I've added some additional information. Now it's everything a bit better :-)

Actually not thinking much about my music. After finishing «Navigator» I wanted to spend a time doing other things and trying to relax (though finally it's being time to do things of my job, family, home and so on). Besides updating «Works», the only things I'm doing concerning my music are reading a couple of books about mixing and acoustic and updating part of my software, not very interesting. But in December I want to begin some new plans!

Thanks again for the good reception of «Navigator»!

October, 2016: My music now on Bandcamp

Hi everybody!

After a period of reflection, I've decided to change some aspects of the distribution of my albums and recordings. First of all, I've uploaded all my discography to and centralized the download solution there. Since now it won't possible to download my releases -except for the "independent tracks" section- from or other websites. I like the flow of Bandcamp and it fits better now for my actual approach.

You can visit my Bandcamp collection here.

Second, since now all my music passes to be "All Right Reserved". I leave the "Creative Commons" idea. I like it, but I worked with it for almost a decade and now I want to know the other posture. Not everything is perfect in the "Creative Commons" licenses and I think the control of the distribution of the own music is one of the weak points. I had, as other friend artists, some abuses on my music and I could do nothing with it because my music "was distributed for free". Of course, all the use licenses that were given in the past would have to be working perfectly. If you have some problem with Youtube, for example, contact to me, explain your case, give me links and I'll provide directly a new license. This is part of the headaches Creative Commons gave to me.

Third, I leave Jamendo as main platform for commercial licenses. For a few of years it was a very nice place for this, but they made a political change a time ago and since then my music has received fewer licenses from them and the money received is bad balanced. I actually use other solutions which work much better and more transparently, so I've left them. If you want to license some of my music for your video or project, for example try Rumblefish. I won't give licenses directly. I prefer concentrate on my music and not to have to take care about all this. Thanks!

Finally, my music will continue being in platforms like Google Play Music, Spotify, iTunes and so on.

Next post here: releasing «Navigator»,
