“Dijimos Apruebo, pero el Rechazo esta en todo”
“Dijimos Apruebo, pero el Rechazo está en todo” (We said I approve, but the rejection is in everything), whose title is a re-reading of a theme by Nicolás Jaar, appeals to different historical moments in Chile, where the feeling remains, things seem to change, but in their essence they keep the same. Many times we can think that we are in limbo, in a context of hopelessness shaped like a rainbow similar to the 1989 elections between YES and NO. However, the social outbreak of 2019 exploded a strong idea: that a change can be generated from individuals, an ideal time to modify the foundations of any society.
I do not believe that we can be oblivious to social changes, be blind to the evils that we as societies possess and that we have strongly sought to change. Music is a social reflection and represents important milestones that happen around us and influence us in the form of sound waves, such as the drought in Chile and in various parts of the world, social conflicts on all continents, looted and exploited natural resources , along with inefficient transportation systems, all of them are social ideas that are present and influence me when composing my music.
This album has taken about 3 years to be created, where the main instruments used were the Elektron Octatrack Sampler, the Analog4 synthesizers, Roland MC-202 and Yamaha Portasound, plus some sounds sampled with Ableton Live. I hope that listening this album is a real journey, as for me it was to compose it every afternoon and night from my studio in Santiago de Chile.
