An intense 2013 so far

Hi everybody!

It's funny, I said on my last post "I should update this more frequently" and it's been almost one year since that time. Don't follow my example, at least when it comes to persistence at writing blogs.

2013 has started with a lot of great chances and honors I've been blessed to receive. These last weeks were some of the busiest ones I have had lately, but hey, how could I complain? 

-I was asked to play the piano in a concert in Malaga! I don't usually have the chance to play a live show, and it definitely was a very cool sensation: the energy created with the audience is magical, rewarding and really fun. I would love to do that more often.


-I received a beautiful message from a famous -and my favorite- dubbing actor, Gandalf's spanish voice! I was even honored to make a video with him reciting poetry. Take a listen to his stunning voice even if you don't understand spanish.


-I played and recorded keyboards for Timo Tolkki's Avalon, which doesn't mean just collaborating with Timo, one of my biggest musical influences, again, but also listening my keyboards while two of my favorite singers of all time, Michael Kiske and Russell Allen, sing over them, it's a priceless and warming feeling, a dream come true!

-I got invited to give a TED talk about Music! It was a really valuable experience I always wanted to speak about music in an academic way because there is much to be said and learnt by the world regarding the musical art. I'll post another update as soon as the video of my TED show gets published in the official website.

I have no words to express how grateful I feel for all of this. And I still have some things to do! That's also the reason why I stopped making videos these last weeks, I'm sorry, but I'll come back very soon :)

If you have a suggestion or special request for the upcoming videos, you can leave it in the comments below. My deep thanks to you for the support and interest as always. Take care and enjoy the rest of the week!

-J
