Currently I'm working as a 3D teacher of educational studies and degree in product design, graphic design and interior design. In my teaching I mix traditional techniques with clay and design with SketchUp and Pepakura. Then here there is a version of Rodin's Thinker designed by me with SketchUp and made of cardboard through Pepakura software.
I'm graduate of a Master's Degree at the University of Castellon with an academic research writing about homebrew games for the Nintendo DS. The research was made inside the Master's Degree in New Trends and Innovation Processes in Communication. Today I'm doing the PhD directed by Dr. César Fernández within the same master's program.
Throughout my life I've lost a lot of time making noise.
After a period of mixing music tracks by the analog way, one day, thanks to Apple, came to my hands a software called GarageBand.
Since then that is all I need to edit my music.
The theme "Hot Summer" from this "pre-electronic" time is an example of how I started making music, playing with Apple loops included with GarageBand and acquiring complementary sound packs.
"A day in Brazil" is a theme where the acoustic and electric elements are quite prominence. The lyrics of the song "Ausiàs March" are an English translation of an Ausiàs March poem by the professor Robert Archer.
In "Electric Bass" all sounds except the drum machine and vocals are done with an electric bass.
I have not included all the tracks recorded because some of them are generated with third author loops that don't clearly indicate if I'm allowed to distribute a work created with them. In the 1st, 2nd and 3rd themes I have used some Apple loops (JamPack World Music), Classic Rock loops and Synthpop loops (Advanced Media Group). In the 4th theme some sound from the Future Music magazine.
What?, Didn't you know that Bach loved the Kaossilator? There is the proof here.
This is a selection of themes where the inspiration is the Kaossilator, the pocket synthesizer that is played without keyboard with a trackpad like a laptop, and Bach.
Also "Nintendo Style" (especially with the sounds of Nintendo DS) Brandenburg 2 and Brandenburg 6 are two versions of the Brandenburg Concerto no. 2 in F major (first movement Allegro) and Brandenburg Concerto no. 6 in B flat Major (also the movement Allegro). If Bach leaves the grave someday I hope he won't get angry too much!
The musical style of the themes that you can download below,
probably the purists will say that's not exactly drum & bass. For me the style is just a label.
Here, in my music are particularly important rhythms and bass lines.
The experiment began with a Casio's VL-Tone and a bass and the result is the theme "Casio VL1".
The theme "Garage Waltz" I began to develop it in the same way as the previous,
with a drum machine and a bass.
I never know how I will finish my music and perhaps some of my themes can be considered unfinished, I say... the day has just 24 hours.
Here there are three more "dance themes" that the previous.
In "Disco Dance Beat" I have used a loop of the "Future Music" magazine.
"Kaossilator Dance Beat" is a dance track with jazz influences where the Kaossilator synthesizer is what stands out.
"Kaossilator Trance Beat" is made wholly and exclusively with the Kaossilator synthesizer.
I don't know if I can describe these themes as a more commercial music. Anyway, I hope you enjoy them.
Here there is a sample of some themes that could be called "symphonics."
I don't try to make "songs" that can be hummed, instead I want to experiment with sampled sounds
and to develop a musical composition that will evolve into the unexpected.
Almost all samples are instruments played by me, except for one loop of Future Music magazine and the wonderful sampled sounds by Ben Boldt (http://www.d.umn.edu/ ~ bold0070/) , reproduced in the theme "Mozart's Funeral".
