News, news, news!!

Hello!

I know it is a little belated, but I still wanted to wish you all an amazing 2015!

As usual, I have got some news for you, regarding some of my projects for this year, and also some due for the end of this January.

Let’s start with some January goodness:

As some of you know, I worked on my first book, “Gaviotas de Papel”, with the remarkable Reina Castellanos and Daissy Linares. Their contribution, which focused on the visual aspect of my written poems, has made our book transcend. I am very proud and happy to announce that Gaviotas de Papel has been chosen as one of the pieces for 3×3 Illustration Annual No. 11!!

I am so glad of this recognition, which brings the spotlight to Reina Castellano’s work as an illustrator. Greatness!

On other news, as I promised, my surprise for the end of the month is the release of my single “Lobo”, which will tak place this Sunday, February 1st!

This is a song I wrote between projects and that I wanted to materialize to keep things interesting. I also want to mention that I had the opportunity of recording part of this single at the Melrose Center. With the help of Audio instructor Edson Alvarez, I was able to lay down some guitars and vocals.
The song was mixed and mastered by my good friends at The Spot Studio, who did a great job as always.

Now to the projects for this year…

Video Blog

Well, I have been seriously thinking about making a video blog, so that I may communicate more intimately with my audience. Not only that, but I would like this idea to provide me with a platform to share, not only my projects, but also some of the things that inspire me and affect me.
I want to create a way for me to share with you some books, ideas, concerns, music, movies, well, you get the idea. This way we can get to know each other on a more human level and blur the stage line between us.

Project “Vuelo al Sur”

I dedicated a good part of 2014 to my “Vuelo al sur” acoustic tour. Needless to say, the experiences and adventures that resulted from my daring pursuit, have inspired me on a level that replenished my creative reservoir, and has granted me the strength to “reinvent” the way I go about materializing new content for you all.
Thus, the “Vuelo al Sur” project was conceived.

I want to make at least one digital single release per month… that’s right ONE SINGLE A MONTH, if not two, granted my laborious nature. My purpose with this is to give emphasis to each song, while constantly releasing content for you guys. Moreover, all of these singles are part of a comprehensive work, which will hold the title of “Vuelo al Sur”. This will lead to a big release show, not only of the Vuelo al Sur album, but also my second book release and a revamped version of the “Àrbol de Luz” record.

I know this is a lot of info, but I promise plenty more details are to come. I am even thinking of a Kickstarter Campaign for a vinyl release for these records!

Well, I am giving away way too much here, so, no more news! =D

Anyways, as usual, thank you for all of your support and thank you for listening!

¡Trabajando Duro! – Working Hard!

Hola!

Como ya saben, soy muy inquieto y me cuesta mucho no tenerles sorpresas constantemente, así que hoy los quiero poner al tanto de lo que he estado trabajando en los últimos meses:

Como algunos de uds ya saben, he estado envuelto en algunos eventos locales, incluyendo un show de beneficio y un evento tributo al legendario Gustavo Cerati.

Al mismo tiempo he estado trabajando arduamente en las fases preliminares de “Vuelo al Sur”, un album inspirado en las vivencias de mi tour acústico al principio de este año, al igual que un nuevo libro que acompañará el lanzamiento del álbum.

Mas sin embargo, no quería despedir este año si producir material nuevo, así que es tengo dos noticias:

La primera es que antes de final de año lanzaré un nuevo sencillo titulado “Lobo”, que aunque no es parte de “Vuelo al Sur”, fue una canción que escribí recientemente y la cual sentí necesario y natural lanzar entre producciones.

La segunda, es que pronto les tendré un video de una grabación en vivo en los estudios del Melrose Center. Mi meta es poder grabar todos mis álbumes en vivo, y este va a ser mi primer esfuerzo consciente para lograrlo. Tendré increíbles invitados conmigo en esta grabación, incluyendo la cantautora Mexicana Kattya Graham.

Por ahora no es mas. Gracias por escuchar, nos vemos pronto.

Acá les dejo la invitación para el tributo a Gustavo Cerati:

Hello!

As some of you know, I have been involved with some live events recently, including a big benefit show we put together locally. But since I am always hyper and working on new stuff, I wanted to give you an update of my activity on the last few months:

I have been working hard on the pre-production of “Vuelo al Sur”, an album inspired on my experiences of my tour at the beginning of this year, as well as a new book which will complement the album release.

However, I did not want to end 2014 without release new material, so I have some news regarding that:

The first, is that I will be releasing a single titled “Lobo” pretty soon. Despite this song is not part of “Vuelo al Sur”, it was something I wrote recently and felt naturally compelled to release between albums.

The second is that I will be releasing a video of a live performance recording at Melrose Center Studios. My goal has always been to records my albums completely live, and this will be my first conscientious effort to do so. For this recording, I will have incredible guests like the Mexican singer/songwriter Kattya Graham.

It is all for now. Thank you for listening and see you soon!

 

“Memorias del Vuelo”

Hola, como estamos hoy?

Como les prometí, hice una pequeña recolección del material fotográfico generado en mi “Vuelo al Sur”.

Así que simplemente, les dejo con varios fragmentos de mis memorias en este maravilloso camino, estampas en la memoria…

Hello!

As promised, here is a bit of a visual tale I put together using the photographic material from my “Vuelo al Sur”.

So, simply, here are some fragments of the marvelous memories I captured:

 

¡Leo Aether invitado de Vive La Cultura!

El pasado Domingo 2 de Marzo, tuve el honor de ser parte de un evento sin precedentes en el bello país de El Salvador, en el cual se celebró la valiosa y fundamental labor de la mujer en la comunidad.

Después de haber tenido la oportunidad de compartir con la gente local por varios días, caminar por la calles Salvadoreñas, de haber sentido el poder de el Volcán de San Salvador, y haberme sumergido en las inmaculadas aguas de el Lago Coatepeque, pude entender la dimensión y la importancia de el programa VIVE. En el evento del Domingo, hubo un gran enfoque en el papel que desempeñan la juventud y la mujer, dos de las demográficas que necesitan más apoyo en el país.

Fue muy satisfactorio para mi ser parte de una actividad que fomenta cosas positivas en una tierra con tanta adversidad, pero a su vez, llena de potencial y cosas bellas. Mis infinitas gracias a La Secretaría de la Cultura, especialmente la señora Ana Mey Rosales, quien creyó en mi proyecto y me dio la oportunidad de cantarle a la gente Salvadoreña.

La Secretaría de la Cultura de El Salvador ya publico algunas fotos del evento:

Mi viaje continuará con mi visita a Mexico. Hasta entonces, estaré trabajando en la recolección de los materiales documentales de mi experiencia en este Vuelo al Sur.

¡Gracias por escuchar y caminar conmigo!
