Happy New Year!

Although we measure time in years, days, hours, minutes, what really
counts is what we do in a certain span of time. There are instants (or
minutes) in which we live so intensely that are equivalent to years,
and there are other moments (or days) in which we experience life in
kind of slow motion; there are other certain moments in which we have
no sense of time though. Music has that magic, if we experience it in
a very intense way -with all our senses on it- we just don’t feel
time. Those moments can be eternal. As a musician I aspire you to
experience eternal instants with my music, those in which we derive a
great joy and remain in our hearts forever. I have experienced that
with the music of great composers too… Those are the valuable time
measurements… It would be fantastic if we could measure our life
experiences in musical minutes don’t you think!

Which are the eternal musical instants that have changed your life? I
look forward to your answer!

In the meantime, Issue No. 23 of my magazine is online, you can check

Happy New Year 2013 Ruben. Time flies as you have been our friend here for more than three years and it seems just like yesterday.

Your profound comments ring so very true. When we are engaged in our passions time disappears and gives way to being. Musical moments mend the heart, bathe our worries and soothe the soul.

I thank you for your continued efforts and undying enthusiasm here. I want you to know how grateful we are for your work and that we are listening.
