After years of studying different and varied musical disciplines, I have decided to embark on my first project as both leader and composer: a quartet made up of piano, double bass, drums and guitar. In this project I have attempted to bring together sonorous worlds that seem far apart, from classical to jazz, mixing diverse musical influences along the way: folklore, pop, rock... as well as all I have listened to and absorbed over 22 years … and all of this passed through a very personal filter. The stories told in each composition are linked in as much as they explain and are based on different sensations, experiences or places.

Who are we?

We are a quartet of friends united by music.

With diverse concerns and tastes we have created a sound, a shared idea, a music that we each feel as very much our own, and that makes us able to transmit to our public.

The group is made up of Carla González on the double base, Héctor Jaca on guitar, Nico Reinosa on drums and me, Biel Harper, on piano.

Why make a record?

After much thought and reflection, I have come to the conclusion that this record is relevant for two reasons. On the one hand it is a calling card, a way of reaching a wider public and leaving them wanting more, bringing them to live concerts. On the other, equally important, it is a way of expressing a musical moment, of interests and concerns; a way of recoding an instant in the here and now that will live on over time, and in this way bring our music to those who cannot make it to one of our concerts.

Why do a Verkami?

Verkami is the way to make real what was simply a dream - and we all know that the world of dreams and ideas is a vital one, but sometimes it is important to come down to earth and make the intangible tangible-. That is why I want to share this project with all of you, I want you to know that making a donation you enable that movement … making a dream a reality, in the form of a CD that you take home and enjoy!

Where your money goes?

Your donation will go to cover basic needs when making a record:

  • The rent of a recording studio.

  • Mixing and mastering the record.

  • The hard copies of the record.

  • Audiovisual material. Here we mean videos made in the studio, the video clip made for Verkami and another we are preparing.

Expected schedule, approximately.

  • Record record: September. (done)

  • Mixing and mastering: October / beginning of November.

  • Making hard copies of the CD: November/December.

And, you are all asking yourselves … what does it sound like??

I am leaving you something to whet your appetite where you can get an idea of what the record will sound like.

#04 / Verkami finalitzat i aconseguit!! Verkami finished and achieved!!

Estimats Verkamistes, vull agrair-vos de nou tot el suport que he rebut durant aquesta campanya a través de les vostres aportacions, comentaris, difusió, etc., moltíssimes gràcies, ha sigut i segueix sent increïble!

També dir-vos que just avui hem estat a l'estudi fent els últims retocs, i que si tot va bé la setmana que ve, o com a molt l'altra, enviarem el disc a la impremta, on trigaran unes dues o tres setmanes a tenir-los llestos. Això vol dir que, si tot va bé, abans de Nadal tindrem els discs en físic!! Lo qual seria un fanstàstic regal de Nadal!

Una abraçada a tots i totes!!
