VUELTAS

a year after the debut album inicio i am glad to be producing a pure continuum – album in the footsteps of the tango nuevo. my views about the tango have not changed, i still think that we should be able to continue what astor piazolla started: to namely to bring new influences which will contribute to moving the style on instead of playing the same old pieces over and over. sure, everyone has different roots, very few people could claim to have been raised in an argentinian ghetto. but exactly this is the most interesting point in new music... in the new tango... everyone brings his own individual influences, be they classical, jazz, pop or other elements. if every musician could “work” in this way, how rich, interesting and beautiful would the tango be today!

vueltas starts in the underground of berlin. i hear these sounds everyday and suddenly i found them quite interesting. out of the underground to the seaside... most of the summers of my childhood i spent in côte atlantique . i could say i know every tree and house there. these four tangos are partly ideas i had right there and partly some melancholic thoughts i got afterwards in berlin finishing the piece. les enfants du paradis is an hommage to the masterpiece of marcel carnet. i've enjoyed this film six times already and i will watch it probably twelve times more. vuelta is a compressed associative, aleatoric piece, which is deeply connected to the oscillator – rustle of an analog synthisyzer from the 70s. this rustle is one of the most interesting and exciting electronic sounds i've ever listened to. the big tango is probably known from inicio, for vueltas i' ve changed a very few things while remixing it.

hope you will enjoy the next adventure of continuum!
