Contra la Positif
I was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina). The soundtrack of my childhood was composed by the tangos sounded on the home radio set and by the guitar my father used to play every week-end. This guitar allows me, at the age of eight, to start music lessons and to know the folk music of my country, until the day when one of my cousins came at home with Beatles Abbey Road. He left -home-, a few hours later, without Beatles Abbey Road. It was the revelation. The time spent on the guitar was increased and the record player was never more stopped. Then, there were bass guitar, piano, harmony and counterpoint lessons, a lot of rock groups and jams, and a year and a half spent in Brazil brings me a definitive coloured and rhythmic influence. After a short career as designer, I had the opportunity of taking the bassist place in the group Alma y Vida, well known in Argentina in those early eighty days. I also have played with bandoneonist Dino Salluzzi, flutist Alejandro Santos and a lot of singers and soloists, while I've continued my composition studies. In the late eighties, I moved to Paris with the goal of living some adventures, travels and knowing another culture and languages. I've had a diploma on Arranging, Orchestration and Composition in the class of Ivan Jullien at the CIM. At the same time, I've spent my bass player time in a lot of gigs and recording sessions alongside many singers and soloist (François Béranger, Danny Brillant, Jean Roucas, Alma Rosa, Luis) and tours all over Europe, Turkey, Algeria and Japan as arranger and bassist for the Buenos Aires Tango dance show. All along this time I've kept my composer activities. Arranging for the orchestras where I've played, song writing for the group Ozono, Jingles and film scoring for Encore Merci and Hibou editions, for TF1 and the Institut National de l'Audiovisuel. Suddenly, one morning, I woke up with a strong will of working for my own project and doing something that all those years of music and meetings could have made grew up into myself. After months of hard work, the album Contrôlé Positif was finished in july 2007. The French version is ready in December 2007 and a Spanish version will be issued in 2008.
