About "Android Dreams"...
The album was born in 1996, one year before I graduated in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Alcala de Henares in Madrid. That year, I composed an electronic music suite called "Electronic Systems" which included seven parts, and seven different moods or ambiences. This music was created with electronic instruments but using classical music schemes I had in my mind and it was also inspired by the pioneers in electronic music and progressive rock music bands.
This suite remained unreleased until 2014, when I decided to start working on the "Android Dreams" album, and appear as tracks 03 to 09. I took another three demos from 1997 and 1998 and wrote two completely new ones (Orbiting Saturn and Human Pulses). I started from scratch, rearranging all notes, instruments and sounds, bringing them to life with new high quality sound. This process took me more than a year in the recording studio, carefully crafting them. And in this period I got the help of Nacho Ferrer (Mirage of Deep) in producing one of the newest pieces "Human Pulses" and the help of Miguel Angel Prados who wrote some lyrics for "Walking to the Stars", the most Pop-Rock track on the album, performed by Maria Esteban Ferrer and Jack Pastrami. The idea of my black strato as an "Android Guitar" walking through the stars came to life in Luis Diez Gurumeta Pictures. The circle was completed when Juan Carlos Dosdados took charge of artwork.
