ABOUT ME / ÜBER MICH (runterscrollen)

I am a acoustic fingerstyle guitarist who loves soundscapes with acres of space between the notes. One half of my family comes from Andalusia, the other half from Catalonia. I was born in Foreign Countries. Choose here your favorite digital platform for streaming my music.

In summer 2021, two milestones were reached: two million streams on Spotify, where I currently have more than 50.000 monthly listeners; and, half a million people have listened to my acoustic guitar since I started my musical adventure in Spring 2019 by releasing my instrumental tracks. You can listen on this Spotify playlist here to all of my solo acoustic guitar originals, as well as my collaborations with Melany Thompson (piano), Edy Hafler (acoustic guitar), John Clark (electric guitar), Jürg Kindle (steel strings guitar), and Andy Salvanos (Chapman Stick).

I also have set up new fusion project called Art & Spencer, in collaboration with Belgian multi-instrumentalist Marc Vliegen aka Have a Cigar. We explore the unusual combination of acoustic guitar and ambient synths. Give it a try!

Ich bin ein in der Schweiz geborener spanischer Gitarrist, der seit Urzeiten in Bern lebt. Auf Spotify habe ich derzeit über 50'000 Hörerinnen und Hörer im Monat. Meine instrumentalen Gitarrenstücke, alles Eigenkompositionen, werden auf rund 800 Playlists geführt. Im Sommer 2021 erreichte ich die 2-Mio-Streams-Marke auf Spotify, insgesamt haben sich - seit ich im Mai 2019 mit der Veröffentlichung meiner Gitarrenstücke begann - über eine halbe Million Menschen meine Musik angehört. Beides freut mich natürlich ungemein.

Der Journalist Martin Burkhalter beschreibt in seinem am 9. Februar 2021 in der Berner Zeitung BZ unter dem Titel "Die Alzheimer-Krankheit seiner Mutter brachte ihn zurück zur Musik" veröffentlichten Portrait mein Gitarrenspiel folgendermassen:

"Seinen minimalistischen Flamenco, gemischt mit Folk-, Blues-, Rock- und Ambient-Elementen, kann man aufmerksam wie eine Jazzplatte hören, man kann ihn zur Meditation nutzen, zur Entspannung oder als Hintergrundmusik zur Lektüre. Es sind wunderschöne, unaufgeregte, rein instrumentale Lieder, die von der Stille zwischen den Tönen leben, die gerade in den Pausen ihre Geschichten entfalten." - Link zu PDF mit gesamten BZ-Artikel hier.

Sie können hier Ihre gewünschte digitale Plattform wählen, um sich sowohl meine Solo- als auch Duo-Stücke mit Melany Thompson, Edy Hafler, John Clark, Jürg Kindle und Andy Salvanos anzuhören.
