Acerca de la obra :

This piece is a tribute to all the fantastic jazz, pop and rock-and-roll musicians that have accompanied my life through their recordings on LPs (Long-plays a word that may seem unknown for the very young generation) in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. It is also about a "retrospective" of the "pop" music during those years, in which all sounds were "analog" and "electric" (not electronic). The computer (the actual instrument of the piece) did not exist in the form we know it now.

A good part of this music was my favorite during my childhood (and it is still now). There is a "Leitmotiv", that comes from the sound of Miles Davis’ "Blue in green" (one of my favorite pieces of music ever), which joins all other parts giving a kind of magic presence throughout the entire work.

Although it may seem so, it is not a simple "collage" of samples, because most of them have been modified through modern computer synthesis techniques, just as Convolution, Phase Vocoding (involving time and/or pitch), Cross-synthesis, envelope following and other, which are more common to pop music, namely Loops and echoes. There are also "pure" Samples, which are accessible to recognition at first sight.

There are 67 different Samples from over 40 musicians of the 30 years mentioned above. Try to catch up them all!!!!.
