When the idea of a blog first came to my mind, I wondered what the first entry would be about. I thought it would be nice to share my YouTube channel and to write about what I upload there. Also to talk about how I record my videos, how I decide what I will record next, etc.
A Bit Of History
Nine years ago (November 14th, 2008) I uploaded my first video, which is the live recording of my Estancias Nocturnas string trio, interpreted by The Coghlan Trio during the 28th Manuel Enríquez Foro Internacional de Música Nueva (New Music International Forum), back in 2006, at the Manuel M. Ponce concert hall in the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. Back in those days, it was not usual to have at hand an HD camera and 4k wasn't even invented yet. The audio recording permits weren't easy to get then. It took another two years for me to publish my second video.
Music For Films
I particularly like music for films, especially by composers such as Zbigniew Preisner, Eleni Karaindrou, Yann Tiersen and Giya Kancheli. So from my second video onwards, I started uploading videos of piano music by those composers. I also decided to start sharing videos of my own work, which can be mainly classified into two different styles: miniatures for soundtracks and contemporary music.
Special Features Of The Videos
From the very first videos I uploaded, I was determined to give them a unique, unrepeatable look and so each and every video of the 60+ in my channel have a unique angle and position of the camera, as well as lighting.
