En los ojos de tus antepasados (2017) 9'
Just when I started to compose this piece a till then unknown album of family photographs crossed my paths. Inside, I found a unique treasury: Photograghs of my ancestors dated back till 1896. The eyes of the captured people were telling so many stories that I simply drowned in imagination. On one hand their stern views were repelling, on the other hand they seemed approachable and even funny. Strangers that belong to me - like people from foreign nations who in the end share all the same planet. I knew that I had to confront my ancestors with what defines me today - my music - in order to research on my relation to them.
Lyrics in English:
What do you see in the eyes of your ancestors?
Do you encounter yourself?
Do you feel the fear of being a stranger to yourself?
Who are you? Your eyes tell me the story of a hidden world.
I don't know you but I know about the way you used to feel.
We are alike.
We have been slaves of our time, like you are!
We couldn't change it. You still have the choice.
