The Red Soundtracks is my way of making my own movie. Cinema noir, suspense, the exoticism of the latin rhythms, stories of the city that came into my life as songs, melodies, lyrics and noises, all those beautiful and sometimes imperceptible, noises that are the soul of my album.
The dreamy world within my film with it's characters laughing, crying, witnessing their surroundings in the silence of their thoughts, walking through their life in solitude or accompanied with their phantoms, people living their everyday dreams and challenges. This Album is my way of looking out from within.
Many Thanks for taking the time to listen and share this dream.
