Description of Style

The music of the young Valencian is characterized by a multitude of very personally influenced rhythms, harmonies and tone colors, which evoke contrasts in musical intensity and a very strong direction.
The complexity in the structural regularities finds its complement in an intuitive force of musical sensitivity, which directly addresses the listener and enables him to reflexively sink into what goes beyond the musical surface. A surge of various emotions that leaves no one indifferent.
