The nostalgic and inspired opening track LATIDO is a tribute to Pau’s late friend and master guitar builder from Montréal (Québec) Arcadio Marín. The strength and depth of Pau’s guitar playing is felt from the very first opening notes, and you can hear the heartbeat –the latido of the guitar– resonate strongly as an evocation of friendship. The presence of Arcadio’s brother, cantaor québécois Marcos Marin, singing at the end of the piece gives the music special profoundness and beautiful meaning.
The wild but romantic complementary track DOS LUNAS is a recreation of the slow Flamenco palo “taranta” from a modern –even futuristic– perspective. Let yourself be taken on a journey to a distant planet, where the reflection of the night sky on a strange river is marked by the presence of two moons, while the mysteries of the universe, life and consciousness echo in the lonely and timeless song of the wolf. Bringing the synthesizer to the front, Pau complements the guitar with cool and refreshing electronic sound layers, and effortlessly unveils a love story between the guitar, the moon, a wolf and space travel. The night, the listener and a perfectly clear awareness blend into one another.
